What would redrawn public health care look like?

It would of helped to have a Pharmacist in Salem on this committee when the rules were drawn up. You Think?
The Legislature last year passed a bill creating the 15-member task force that in October will report back with recommendations on what public health services communities must provide, how to restructure the state’s public health system — in which services currently are doled out at the county level — and how to fund public health in a sustainable way. It will then be up to the Legislature whether to move forward with a new regional framework.
Although it’s not yet known what form the regional model will take, task force members emphasized the need for coordination among Oregon’s Coordinated Care Organizations. The CCOs are the 16 entities across the state responsible for administering the Oregon Health Plan, the state’s Medicaid program, and county public health programs. www.bendbulletin.com/home/2069431-151/what-would-r…like#
