Today’s consumers expect easy, near-instant access to everything, including transportation, food and, increasingly, health care. With advancements in telehealth technology and the growing adoption of on-demand services, it’s also easier than ever for people to access care on their own terms.

Yet, even with these advancements, there is still much work to be done to improve access and affordability as well as overall health across the state of Oregon and beyond.

Earlier this month, President of Regence BlueShield of Oregon, Angela Dowling, joined the Medford/Jackson Chamber of Commerce, community members and health care advocates in an open dialogue about the health of our state and the evolution taking place within the health care industry to meet the needs of today’s consumers.
