Health Care Transformation and SBHCs
This webpage will be updated as changes in Oregon’s health care reform continue. Check back regularly for updates.
Oregon has prioritized the conversion of our health care system to a model that focuses on ensuring a healthy population through person-centered care in a cost-effective manner through the development of Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs). School-based health centers are natural partners in the health care reform movement to help ensure a healthy population of children and adolescents.
The SBHC State Program Office strongly encourages all SBHCs to become state-recognized as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH). Coordinated Care Organizations are required to include recognized primary care homes in their networks of care to the maximum extent feasible.
