The Oregon Health Authority Transformation Center, in partnership with the Oregon Rural Practice-based Research Network at OHSU (ORPRN), is issuing a call for presentation proposals for the 2021 health-related services virtual convening (May 24–25, 2021). We invite presentations from CCOs that showcase innovation in the topic areas listed below. We are especially interested in showcasing initiatives that are targeted at priority populations and center equity in their approaches. Presentations will be 30 minutes.


PRIORITY TOPIC AREAS

  • Addressing the statewide housing availability crisis

  • Increasing provider awareness and utilization of Flexible Services

  • Creating complementary strategies for HRS & SHARE

  • Leveraging HRS to support implementation of Community Information Exchange (CIE) systems through community engagement

  • Braided funding strategies to leverage HRS resources

  • Sustaining partnerships built through COVID-19 and the wildfires

  • Increasing access to behavioral health services and supports


PRESENTATION PROPOSALS

To submit a presentation proposal, please send the following to Anne King (kinga@ohsu.edu) by Friday, March 12. Proposals should be no more than one page and should specify:

  • Summary of initiative, including description of activities, relevant partnerships and outcomes

  • The goal of the initiative and the issue it seeks to address

  • Description of how equity is centered and/or priority populations are targeted

  • Alignment with priority topic areas listed above

  • Description of methods for audience engagement (see below)

  • Presenters (up to three)


AUDIENCE ENGAGEMENT

We strongly encourage presenters to consider innovative alternative presentation formats that engage and entertain the audience more than traditional PowerPoint presentations (keeping in mind this convening will be virtual). Some suggested alternative formats could include:

  • Pecha Kucha storytelling

  • TED talk-style inspirational speech

  • Recorded video interviews or zoom calls with CCO and community partners

  • Other innovative formats — be creative!

When: May 24 and 25, 2021 (9 a.m.–2 p.m. each day)

Who should attend: CCOs and their partners involved with health-related services, including community benefit initiatives and flexible services. CCO staff working on HRS are the primary audience for this HRS convening. There may be relevant sessions that CCO partners working on HRS will benefit from attending. CCOs should work with their HRS partners to determine which partners to invite and to share the registration details.
