  • Oregon Health Authority releases February’s Quarterly CCO Progress Report and March's Initial Quarterly Dashboard
    health system transformation progress report

    The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) recently released two reports that help track changes over time in Oregon’s health care system. The initial quarterly dashboard presented to the Oregon Health Policy Board at its March meeting is the first in a series that will measure changes in Oregon’s health care system as recent reforms and coverage expansions take effect. The dashboard will enable policymakers, health care providers, insurers, purchasers and individuals to better navigate and improve Oregon’s health system.

    OHA also released a Quarterly Report focused more specifically on coordinated care organizations (CCOs). Across Oregon, CCOs are working on a local level to transform the health care delivery system to bring better health, better care and lower costs to Oregonians. The Report provides status updates on the state’s progress towards these goals, through reports on performance data, financial data, and progress toward reaching benchmarks, beginning with 2011 baseline data.

    Fast-track enrollment is available to resident Oregonians who:

    1. Meet the qualifications for the Oregon Health Plan
    2. Are either enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or have children enrolled in Healthy Kids/OHP

Coordinated Care Organizations
Health system transformation 
Coordinated Care Organizations, or CCOs, have been formed in local communities across Oregon. CCOs are networks of all types of health care providers who have agreed to work together in their local communities for people who receive health care coverage under the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid). As of Nov. 1, 2012, there are 16 CCOs in operation​, serving about 90 percent of Oregon Health Plan members.

In addition to the work to create Coordinated Care Organizations (above), the Addictions and Mental Health Division has undertaken a parallel but separate system change effort with Oregon's county governments to restructure the publicly funded addictions and mental health system for people who are not eligible for the Oregon Health Plan.
