An innovative group charged with improving healthcare in Central Oregon will be discussing its mission in a public forum this afternoon. State lawmakers approved the Central Oregon Health Council during this last legislative session. It's made up of county leaders as well as representatives from hospitals and insurance companies. Dr. Robin Henderson with St. Charles is on the Council: “Part of what has to happen to make reform happen is to help high risk people. Make sure they're not going to ER, all there medical services are in one medical home.” It's hoped the Council will be a model for the state on how to cut healthcare costs and increase accessibility. The Council will be meeting at the Deschutes County Commissioner’s Office from 1 until 4 p.m. today.
