2017 Innovation Café: Improving Key Health Metrics

This forum brought together Oregon health system transformation champions to engage in peer-to-peer learning and networking. CCO, clinic and other innovative health system leaders presented 30 projects and discussed learnings focused on three CCO incentive metrics:

  • Increasing effective contraceptive use to reduce unintended pregnancy
  • Reducing cigarette smoking prevalence (tobacco use)
  • Reducing emergency department use with a focus on behavioral health

Plenary speakers included Ignatius Bau, a national expert who provides technical assistance to advance health equity; and Patty Cason, a consultant and clinician trainer who specializes in increasing access to comprehensive patient-centered contraceptive services.
