Cost data shows the charges associated with different categories of care provided to Oregon Health Plan members. This includes services such as surgeries, prescriptions and community mental health visits. Through the health system transformation process, we expect overall costs to increase in some areas, such as preventive primary care medical visits, and to decrease in other areas, such as medical care received in a hospital. Health system transformation will provide better care in the most efficient and effective setting as possible. This will help bend the cost curve down to a more sustainable level, while improving health.
This report shows baseline cost data from 2011, before health transformation began and CCOs were formed. It also includes preliminary quarterly data from the end of 2012 and the first half of 2013. Future quarterly reports will contain more complete data that will allow us to track our progress towards reaching the benchmarks that are currently being developed.
* Includes claim data received and processed through 9/27/13. At this point, there is no data on services that have happened, but have yet to be recorded or invoiced. This dashboard is also incomplete due to lags in submitting data to OHA. As a result, this data is very preliminary. The values will be recalculated and reported as additional data becomes available. This is the first step in collecting and sharing data, and future dashboards will be updated when more complete data is submitted.
** Oregon baseline measures are state-wide values from CY 2011 and are based on data before health transformation began and CCOs were formed.
