In order to evaluate the effectiveness of state financial incentive programs in recruiting health care providers to practice in rural and medically underserved areas and retaining health care providers in rural and medically underserved areas, the Oregon Health Policy Board shall collect information about financial incentive program participants, which may include:
The month and year of entry into the program;
The locations of service and duration of service in each location;
The main services provided, discipline, specialty and hours of direct patient care;
The percentage of services provided through telemedicine; and
Other demographic information that the board and the Office of Rural Health determine to be useful in the evaluation.
The board shall compile and analyze the data collected under this section and report its findings and analysis to the interim committees of the Legislative Assembly related to health every two years. [2017 c.718 §2; 2017 c.718 §17]
