Health Aspects of Kindergarten Readiness Technical Workgroup

Overview

The Children’s Institute, with support from the Oregon Health Authority, will be convening a Health Aspects of Kindergarten Readiness Technical Workgroup beginning in 2018.

The purpose of this new, technical workgroup is to explore measures of the health sector’s role in kindergarten readiness. The workgroup charge is to:

1. Recommend one or more measures of the health sector's role in kindergarten readiness (KR) to Oregon's Metrics and Scoring Committee for adoption as incentivized health system quality metrics. The recommend measure(s) must:
  • Drive health system behavior change, quality improvement and investments that meaningfully contribute to improved KR.
  • Catalyze cross-sector collective action necessary for achieving KR.
  • Be consistent with the intention and goals of the Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) metrics program.
2. Identify opportunities for future measure development, data sharing, and/or other measurement opportunities to drive cross-sector, collective action towards KR.

The creation of this workgroup has been approved by Oregon’s Metrics & Scoring Committee as well as the Health Plan Quality Metrics Committee. This workgroup will build on past efforts of the Child and Family Well-being Measures Workgroup previously convened by the Oregon Health Policy Board and Early Learning Council.
