About the Office of Health Analytics

The Office of Health Analytics manages more than a dozen data sources and programs that are used to inform policy and support health system transformation in Oregon. We provide reports and recommendations so that OHA leadership, the Governor, the Legislature, researchers and other community partners can better understand and improve upon the quality and equity of Oregon’s health care system and outcomes.

Health Analytics’ primary roles are to:

  • Ensure the availability of high-quality reliable data through data system integration and transparent reporting;
  • Analyze data, and develop strategies and tools to assess the performance of OHA programs; and
  • Support OHA policy development, implementation, and evaluation.
