Federal Issues

The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems actively monitors legislative and regulatory activities in Washington, D.C., and maintains regular contact with members of the Oregon Congressional delegation to ensure that federal policy serves the needs of Oregon hospitals and patients. With our active involvement, OAHHS members have a voice in the federal policymaking process.

The OAHHS federal public policy agenda guides the association in developing public policies that address the challenges hospitals and health systems face as they seek to fulfill their missions of serving the health needs of their communities. It also serves as a prism to use in evaluating policies under consideration by Congress and regulatory agencies. It is aligned with the American Hospital Association’s policy agenda and is based on principles that have guided the association’s public policy development for several years. These principles are:
  • Health care coverage and access to high quality services for all residents of Oregon;
  • Delivery and payment system reforms that foster quality and greater value for dollars spent on medical care;
  • Predictable and stable revenue streams;
  • An adequate and diverse supply of health care professionals;
  • Health equity and equitable, coordinated care;
  • A common-sense approach to regulating health care providers that ensures accountability but allows for flexibility to support a transforming health care system; and
  • Adequate support to the health care system during and following the COVID-19 public health emergency.
