Health Care Policy

Mission. OBI’s health care policy committee works to identify issues affecting the three most important principles of health care: quality, access, and affordability.  Working in conjunction with legislative leaders, the governor, and business community, OBI seeks ways to address the many cost drivers in the system and help modernize delivery in our state. As technology, innovation and regulatory changes all play a role in shaping the accessibility and affordability of health care for Oregonians, it is time to consider the direction our current system should take to promote healthier Oregonians and a more affordable health care delivery system.

The Committee. OBI provides a forum for some of the most knowledgeable stakeholders in the health industry to discuss the many challenges to Oregon’s health care delivery system. The committee also evaluates and develops legislative proposals that will help employers and Oregonians to afford quality health care in the future.
