Oregon's Support for Strong Primary Care Webinar

On this webinar, Evan Saulino, MD, PhD, discussed new legislation in Oregon, passed in July 2017, to double, over a five-year period, the amount of money spent by all Oregon payers on primary care. These additional funds will be channeled into primary care alternative payment models. In addition, Dr. Saulino described innovative work by the Oregon Health Authority Patient-Centered Primary Care Home Program (PCPCH).

The Oregon legislature established the PCPCH Program in 2009. The goals of the program are to develop strategies to identify and measure whether the primary care home meets its objectives, promote its development, and encourage Oregonians to seek care through a recognized PCPCH.   

Dr. Saulino is a family physician at the Providence Southeast Family Medicine Clinic. He acts as the Clinical Advisor for Oregon’s PCPCH Program, which works with clinics serving over three million patients across Oregon.
