Julie Cox-Kain, chief operating officer of the State Department of Health, said only 10 percent of what contributes to a person's overall health involves access to treatment. Some 40 percent involves the person's behaviors.
The state's existing public health system can play an enhanced role in helping individuals and entire communities deal with health issues, set goals and get healthier, she said.
Using diabetes as an example, she said the public health system could work with individuals to manage their weight to avoid the disease; for those who become diabetic, the system can teach them to manage the disease so that a chronic issue doesn't become an expensive acute one.
Further, the system can effectively help entire communities set goals and take steps that will result not only in less diabetes, but more health, she said.
"We want to create environments for people where they can be healthy," Cox-Kain said. "These efforts are meant to achieve both higher health outcomes and a decrease in the cost of health care."
A healthier community means a healthier business environment, a healthier work force and a healthier state budget, she said.
"If you can do those things, it helps the bottom line. It helps the state's bottom line, it helps businesses' bottom line," she said.

"It has changed pretty dramatically," said Julie Cox-Kain, chief operating officer for the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
In recent weeks, Cox-Kain said, state health agencies have been in close contact with federal officials working on the project.
"I'm fairly confident that they're going to have a product on Oct. 1," she said. "I don't think it's going to be everything they had envisioned an insurance exchange could be, but I think they're going to be ready to accept insurance applications on time, and they continue to say that."
The largest remaining issue - and the one that has taken up most of the discussions between federal and state officials - is how the federal exchange will interact with state regulation of the insurance industry, she said.
"We've had pretty extensive conversations about that," Cox-Kain said.
