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.

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 CCO Incentive Measures.

Data & Reporting

OHA regularly provides CCOs with progress reports on the CCO Incentive and State Performance Measures for their review and feedback.

Metrics are publically reported in the Health System Transformation Progress Reports​.
