Brochures & Orientation Materials



At the heart of everything we do is a commitment to our members. To create an easy, seamless process and answer participant questions of the RHCPP process, we have created a five-part webinar series. These helpful presentations cover everything from an overview of OHN; using your connection; your web-based site portal; your Network Operations Center (NOC) and useful reports; preparing for installation; working with your vendors; processing and approving invoices electronically; and much more. Please contact dgaliel [at] oregonhealthnet [dot] org (Deb Galiel) or kklupenger [at] oregonhealthnet [dot] org (Kim Klupenger) to arrange a one-on-one orientation or to answer specific questions you may have.
