As directed by Oregon House Bill 2216 of 2013, the Oregon Health Authority is using quality health metrics to show how well hospitals are advancing health system transformation, reducing costs, and improving patient safety.
Outcome and quality measures have been developed by the Hospital Metrics Advisory Committee for the Hospital Transformation Performance Program. Funds from a quality pool will be awarded to hospitals based on their performance on these measures.
The Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (OAHHS) also provides technical assistance webinars on its website.
Final specifications used to produce incentive (pay for performance) measures for HTPP Years 3 and 4 are available below. Measures were produced using national and standardized specifications. Variations are noted in the documents.
Years 1 and 2 specification sheets and methodology documents are available upon request. These documents have been removed from the webpage to minimize confusion between the measurement years.
The measures below are not eligible for incentive payment in HTPP Year 4 (calendar year 2017). However, hospitals are encouraged to track and voluntarily report data to OHA. Voluntary reported data may be used as a baseline for potential future quality incentive payment.
