About OHWI

Mission: To advance the development of a high-quality health care workforce in order to improve the health of every Oregonian.

Oregon's health care workforce is in a dynamic period. A growing and aging population, advances in medical knowledge and innovation in technology, state and federal health policy goals, an aging health care workforce, and new ways of delivering care are major drivers contributing to this changing state. Created as a public/private partnership from an initiative of the Governor's Office, OHWI advances responses to the state's health care workforce needs.  Recognized in state law as an expert in health care workforce matters and as an advisor to state agencies, OHWI is regularly called upon by leaders in industry, education, workforce development and government.  OHWI is also home to the Portland Metro Area Health Education Center.

Transformation of Care:  Health reform has strong expectations for the workforce, and OHWI continues its collective impact efforts to promote the development of and access to a health care workforce to deliver high quality care.  OHWI connects leaders in industry, education, government, and workforce agencies to address the workforce implications of interprofessional care, electronic health records, patient-centered primary care homes, coordinated care organizations and to guide the transformation of health profession education and training. 

Research:  A trusted source of health care workforce information, OHWI researches and publishes reports on health professions, workforce supply and demand, graduate trends, economic contributions, educational programs, geographic needs, and emerging influences.  Its readily available information supports workforce planning, strategic planning and investments.  OHWI's research has helped secure millions of dollars in federal, state, and private grants for education and workforce development programs.  OHWI's research has been recognized by such organizations as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the National Academy for State Health Policy.

Convening and Facilitation:  OHWI has cultivated hundreds of workforce partnerships among the health care industry and education, convened and facilitated seminal meetings including statewide summits, and gathered subject-matter experts for strategic planning.  Maintaining a neutral role, OHWI has built a reputation as an ideal "collective impact" convenor, encouraging candid and meaningful dialogue to shape solutions that work.  OHWI's successful track record using its Brain Trust model shows extraordinary capacity to bring together diverse stakeholders across industry, education, and policy sectors to develop sustainable solutions to Oregon's health care workforce needs. 

 

Expert Consultation:  OHWI is regularly called upon by leaders in industry, education, workforce development and government to inform and assist with health care workforce efforts.  Contact us to learn how we can assist in your health care workforce planning and projects.
