The Oregon Health Authority is using quality health metrics to show how well Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) are improving care, making quality care accessible, eliminating health disparities, and curbing the rising cost of health care.
Seventeen outcome and quality measures have been developed by the Metrics and Scoring Committee. Funds from a quality pool will be awarded to CCOs based on their annual performance on these 17 CCO Incentive Measures.
OHA regularly provides CCOs with progress reports on the CCO Incentive and State Performance Measures for their review and feedback.
The specifications used to produce the measures are available below. Measures were produced using national and standardized specifications. Variations are noted in the documents.
2013 and 2014 specification sheets and methodology documents are available upon request. These documents have been removed from the webpage to minimize confusion between the measurement years.
