Health and Health Care Forum
Host Robert Hall interviews Vern Saboe, a member of the Oregon's Health System Transformation Team, a group of 45 people from all aspects of health and health care and bi-partisan lawmakers. The group was charged with developing a plan to improve the health delivery system for Oregon Health Plan and Medicaid clients. The plan focuses on coordinated mental, physical, behavioral, and oral health to free up dollars trapped in an inefficient system, increase focus on prevention, and improve care.
Dr. Vern Saboe, a chiropractor, is the only complementary medical provider of that group. They talk about his hopes and disappointments as the recommendations of the Team become the basis for a new system of health care delivery. They also talk about the Veterans Administration's problems accepting and encouraging the use of chiropractic care for wounded veterans.
