Tina Edlund has a long and distinguished career in both health policy and health services research. Her career spans positions serving three Oregon governors, academia and the private sector.
As chief of policy in the newly created Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Tina was instrumental in Oregon’s recent efforts to transform its health care delivery system. She led the team that negotiated the terms and conditions for Oregon’s recent 1115(a) waiver amendment and renewal process, which paved the way for transforming Oregon’s Medicaid health care delivery system to one based on a model of coordinated care. She was also one of the lead authors of Oregon’s State Innovation Model (SIM) grant, which strengthens and supports the spread of Oregon’s coordinated care model to public employees, Oregon educators, and Medicare beneficiaries.
Tina served as the acting director of OHA for a brief time before working in the Governor’s office where she led the transition of eligibility and enrollment functions from Oregon’s health insurance exchange to the federally facilitated marketplace.
Prior to joining HMA, Tina served in the governor’s office as the federal liaison for health care.
She has held research and leadership positions within Providence Health System, Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon’s Medicaid office and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA).
Tina is a graduate of the University of Oregon and has a master’s degree in urban affairs from Portland State University.
