About the Office of Health Analytics
The Office of Health Analytics
provides reports and recommendations so that OHA leadership, the Governor, and the Legislature can better understand and improve upon the performance of OHA programs and the quality of Oregon’s health system as a whole. Health Analytics:
- Collects and analyzes data to inform policy development, program implementation, and system evaluation;
- Collaborates with professional researchers to develop a body of knowledge that can be used to help lower and contain costs, improve quality, and increase access to health care in order to improve the lifelong health of Oregonians; and
- Provides important information that individuals can use to help inform their care decisions.
