This rendering of UHS' planned psychiatric hospital in Wilsonville was posted with other… moreThe Oregon Health Authority has once again delayed its final decision on whether to approve a controversial psychiatric hospital in Wilsonville. OHA previously issued a preliminary denial of Universal Health Services’ planned 100-bed facility south of Portland.
Oregon lawmakers are pondering action to speed the state’s process of enrolling Medicaid recipients into coordinated care organizations. The House Committee on Health Care is sponsoring a bill that would require the Oregon Health Authority to enroll individuals in CCOs no later than 30 days after determining they’re eligible. The bill attempts “to make our CCO system more sustainable,” Rep. Cedric Hayden, a Roseburg Republican and co-vice chair of the health care committee, said at a hearing.
Rep. Mitch Greenlick is seeking to restrict political contributions from entities that derive more than half their income from taxpayers — including the state’s coordinated care organizations. The Portland Democrat filed a constitutional amendment proposal in the Legislature, HJR 32, that would prohibit publicly financed entities from contributing more than $500 to any candidate or political committee. If it passes, the question would then go to voters.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
