Mission and Purpose
Oregon Health Decisions (OHD) is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission "is to educate and empower Oregonians to better understand their choices for advance care planning, talk with their loved ones about their decisions, and legally document their wishes in an Advance Directive. OHD provides materials and education to help people make betterinformed decisions about their future health care needs and wishes."

Specializations and Activities
The Oregon Health Decisions organization's Advance Directive KEYConversations™ method of engagement provides the opportunity for residents of Oregon from all ethnic, religious, and social backgrounds to get involved in the state's health care policy choices while being educated simultaneously on health care polices through citizen's assembly and community forums. From this method, Oregonians are able to depict their health care desires to the state government for consideration, allowing for the government to make legislative decisions based off of the wants and needs of the people of Oregon. The Oregon Health Decisions efforts correlate with helping low-income households select the most appropriate Medicaid plan that suit them.
