For more information about the Oregon Health Authority VISTA Partnership Program, please visit: www.healthoregon.org/vista. The Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership (OPIP) is a statewide organization based in the Department of Pediatrics at Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU) www.oregon-pip.org. OPIP is meant to create a meaningful, long term collaboration of stakeholders invested in child health care quality, with the common purpose of improving the health of the children and youth of Oregon. OPIP is dedicated to building health and improving outcomes for children and youth by:1) Collaborating in quality measurement and improvement activities across the state; 2) Supporting evidence-guided quality activities; 3) Incorporating the patient and family voice into quality efforts; and 4) Informing policies that support optimal health and development for all children and youth. Currently, all of OPIP’s efforts include a focus on improving quality of care and building health and resilience for publicly insured children and for children who are furthest from opportunity. We focus on key aspects of health that can predict a child’s functioning and resilience. Furthermore, we are leading a number of efforts focused on the health care system’s role in addressing and positively contributing to the child social determinants of health. With the innovative public health work happening in Oregon, Portland is a wonderful place to explore a future in public health.|
