Oklahoma’s outdated fee-for-service health care model has failed to deliver the results our state and people need. With around 30% of the population  – more than 1.2 million Oklahomans – currently depending on Medicaid for health care coverage, Oklahoma is now making changes to reward providers for delivering value-based care and outcomes instead of the number of services.

Timothy Pehrson, President and CEO of INTEGRIS Health, shares how this Medicaid reform will be transformational for Oklahoma by incentivizing health care providers to shift their mindset from focusing on reactive services to delivering forward-thinking treatment that will improve total health outcomes and promote healthier living for generations to come.
