The Oregon Center for Children & Youth with Special Health Needs (OCCYSHN) at the Institute on Development and Disability (IDD) is Oregon's Title V public health agency for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). We administer Oregon’s Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant funds for CYSHCN and support the systems that serve CYSHCN and their families.
OCCYSHN’s System and Workforce Development (S&W) Unit collaborates with local public health authorities, local and regional health care, education, and developmental disabilities systems as well as state-level partners to ensure a well-integrated system of care for CYSHCN. Details about our work are available on our website at https://www.ohsu.edu/occyshn.
OCCYSHN is seeking an experienced, creative team member to join OCCYSHN’s S&W unit as the Systems and Workforce Innovation Specialist. The duties of this position support the mission, goals and objectives of OHSU, IDD and OCCYSHN as well as the Maternal Child Health Bureau Title V public health goals and objectives.
Public health modernization, transformation of primary care, integration of care across systems, and other changes in the health care landscape, have created challenges and opportunities for the improvement of systems of care serving CYSHCN. The ideal candidate will have credentials and/or experience to support health-related or child-serving organizations in the development and implementation of innovative strategies that align with OCCYSHN’s strategic plan to improve the health and well-being of CYSHCN and their families. This necessitates that the candidate have experience with, and commitment to, cross-systems, family-centered team-based care.
The Innovation Specialist will support OCCYSHN efforts to promote cross-systems care coordination with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Responsibilities include: project planning, project coordination, implementation oversight, liaising with external partners, and collaboration with internal partners.
