Metrics and quality measures are used by the Oregon Health Authority to determine whether Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) are effectively and adequately improving care, making quality care accessible, eliminating health disparities, and controlling costs for the populations that they serve.
The Metrics and Scoring Committee was established in 2012 by Senate Bill 1580 for the purpose of recommending outcomes and quality measures for Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs). The nine members are appointed by the Director of the Oregon Health Authority and serve two-year terms. Membership must include:
- Three members at large;
- Three individuals with expertise in health outcomes measures; and
- Three representatives of coordinated care organizations.
The committee is responsible for identifying outcome and quality measures, including measures of outcome and quality for ambulatory care, chemical dependency and mental health treatment, oral health care and all other health services provided by CCOs.
The Children's Institute, with support from the Oregon Health Authority, is currently seeking applicants for a Health Aspects of Kindergarten Readiness Metric Technical Workgroup
, which will convene in 2018. Application is available on the Workgroup webpage
The Metrics and Scoring Committee meets the third Friday of each month.
