OCHI is the evaluation partner for OHA’s Healthier Oregon program
OCHI is the evaluation partner for OHA’s Healthier Oregon program. This program expanded Medicaid benefits to Oregonians regardless of immigration status beginning in July 2022. OCHI is working with 21 different community partners across Oregon to conduct the evaluation. In fact, the team (specifically, Oralia Mendez, Araceli Mendez, Haley Delgado, and Daniela Aguilar) trained community partners in data collection procedures, and community partners conducted surveys with Healthier Oregon members.
The survey was offered in 24 different languages, and most evaluation components were offered in Spanish and English. Completing the team: Sandi Phibbs as PI and Katie McLaughlin in the Department of Statistics.
