In 2013, Oregon House Bill 2216, Section 1, established the nine-member hospital performance metrics advisory committee appointed by the Director of the Oregon Health Authority. The committee used a public process to identify a set of performance standards (measures and targets) for hospitals that are designed to advance health system transformation, reduce hospital costs, and improve patient safety. The committee met four times between February and July, 2014, and made a formal recommendation which is now being used to determine incentive payments to DRG hospitals through the new Hospital Transformation Performance Program. The Committee began meeting regularly again in 2015; see meeting information below.
