Non-Emergent 911 Calls Offer Intervention Opportunity

Not every person who calls 911 needs to be transported to a hospital for emergency treatment. But people who make those phone calls do need some kind of health care; they just don’t know how to access the services they need.

With that in mind, the health insurer CareOregon recently made a $2.5 million investment in a new Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) initiative to connect community members with the care they need. The Community Health Assess & Treat (CHAT) program will take a proactive approach to assessing and meeting the needs of members of Oregon Health Plan, the state’s Medicaid program.
