Technical Specifications and Guidance Documents for Hospital Transformation Performance Program

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.

Outcome and quality measures have been developed by the Hospital Metrics Advisory Committee for the Hospital Transformation Performance Program. Funds from a quality pool will be awarded to hospitals based on their performance on these measures.
