Idaho Healthcare Coalition (IHC) and the Statewide Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP)
IOHA Executive Director, Jennifer Wheeler, was appointed by Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter in 2014 as the oral health representative on the IHC. The IHC was created in February of 2014 by executive order of the Governor to oversee the implementation of the Statewide Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP) to develop a patient-centered model of care that “focuses on improved population health, improved individual health outcomes, and cost efficiencies.”
The IOHA has created an IOHA-SHIP Oral Health Advisory Committee that provides guidance and expertise to our board for our efforts around our Oral Health Integration initiative. We also have named oral health representatives for most of the Regional Health Collaboratives across the state.
