ORS 414.628
Innovator agents


Upon the request of a coordinated care organization, the Oregon Health Authority shall assign to the coordinated care organization one employee of the authority, called an innovator agent, to act as the single point of contact between the coordinated care organization and the authority. The innovator agent must be available to the organization on a day-to-day basis to facilitate the exchange of information between the coordinated care organization and the authority. The organization may provide a work space to enable the agent to be colocated at a site of the coordinated care organization if practical.


Innovator agents must observe the meetings of the community advisory councils and report on the meetings to the authority.


Not less than once every calendar quarter, all of the innovator agents must meet in person to discuss the ideas, projects and creative innovations planned or undertaken by their assigned coordinated care organizations.


The innovator agent shall be made available by the authority for a period of four years beginning on the date that the coordinated care organization first contracts with the authority to be a coordinated care organization. Upon the request of the coordinated care organization, the authority may extend the period. [2012 c.8 §14]
