It’s hoped the Central Oregon Health Council just approved by state lawmakers will be a model for the state on how to cut healthcare costs and increase accessibility. The council includes representatives from all three Central Oregon counties, as well as those from hospitals and health insurers. This group has been doing things like targeting patients who use the ER as their primary healthcare provider and giving them other options. Dr. Robin Henderson, the Director of St. Charles Behavioral Health believes they're doing important work.  “We're not going to get more money to provide healthcare to those who can afford it; so we're going to have to figure out how to provide a better job and be a better community partner. It’s been an exciting thing to be a part of and one of the cool things I got to do in my career.” The Health Council has reduced ER visits and healthcare costs by providing those chronic ER users, with other healthcare options.
