Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber was invited to the State of the Union address by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, because of Oregon's advances in health care.

 

Kitzhaber says other states are paying attention:  “The Governor of Alabama actually sent some folks up to take a look at what we’re doing.”

 

Oregon's coordinated care organizations provide better primary care to Medicare and Medicaid patients. “We’re trying to change the financing structure so that you get paid for actually producing healthy people.”

 

Kitzhaber says the President delivered a compelling vision for America and a comprehensive plan to grow the middle class.
