OPCA is a non-profit membership organization, founded in 1984. Our members are community health centers (also known as Federally Qualified Health Centers, or FQHCs) and their supporters.
Since its founding, OPCA has provided technical assistance and training for members to help them provide the highest quality care for their patients. Our Safety Net Medical Home Initiative is a groundbreaking project to improve health care delivery across the state. The medical home model enables health care teams to focus on both individual patient needs and the overall health of the patient population.
OPCA also is a voice in Salem and Washington D.C. for accessible, high-quality primary care services for low-income and other vulnerable populations. We advocate for adequate reimbursement for health centers, representing our members in policy decisions at the state and federal levels. As a catalyst for improved health care for all Oregonians, OPCA is recognized as an innovative collaborator. We seek new and workable ways to remove barriers and assure the long term viability of health care services for Oregonians in need.
Our latest progress report features highlights of our work from January 2012 - March 2013. Our strategic goals for 2013 focus on four strategic areas for community health centers: quality, value, access and equity.
Health equity for all Oregonians.
Lead the transformation of primary care to achieve health equity for all.
Oregon Primary Care Association believes that every person has a right to accessible, high-quality, comprehensive health care.
