Overview

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.

Eleven outcome and quality measures have been developed by the H​ospital Metrics Advisory Committee for two measurement years, October 2013–September 2014 (baseline year) and October 2014–September 2015 (performance year). Funds from a quality pool will be awarded to hospitals based on their performance on these measures.
