The Transformation Center is partnering with the Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership (OPIP) to provide supports and technical assistance to CCOs focused on using children’s health complexity data. (This data is provided to CCOs by OHA’s Office of Health Analytics in partnership with OPIP.) The supports listed below are available beginning January 2019. Additionally, OHA is contracting with OPIP to develop a set of short guides to help CCOs in using the children’s health complexity data. These guides will be posted on this page as they become available.
For more background on this data project, please visit OPIP's project page.
Current resources and opportunities
Webinar: Overview of updated children's health complexity data reports and resources
In this webinar, the OHA Office of Health Analytics and the Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership will share updated data on children's health complexity, answer questions about the new data reports, and discuss resources and availabile technical assistance for use of the data.
- Update (12/3/19): This webinar has been postponed until further notice.
- Audience: CCOs
Resources for CCOs: Convening community-level stakeholders to review children's health complexity data
Webinar: Overview of children’s health complexity technical assistance opportunities
This webinar, presented by the Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership, provides a preview of available technical assistance (TA) consultation hours and learning collaboratives focused on using children’s health complexity data. Opportunities include but are not limited to: guides and tools for CCOs; a learning collaborative meeting for CCOs; and TA hours to individual CCOs (see details below).
TA hours for CCOs: Using data on children’s health complexity
Update: TA hours for all three focus areas must be requested by April 30, 2020. Any new CCOs entering the market in 2020 must request TA hours by June 30, 2020. Once requested, TA hours can be used through December 31, 2020.
CCOs now have the opportunity to use 10 hours of technical assistance provided by the OHA Transformation Center in partnership with OPIP focused on using children’s health complexity data. Technical assistance activities will be provided by OPIP; CCOs can work directly with OPIP to determine exact activities. Each CCO may apply their 10 hours of TA as they choose across three available areas:
- Using population-level findings regarding children’s health complexity to engage community-level partners and facilitate community conversations
- Examples of activities include OPIP presenting about the data at a meeting of your community-level stakeholders, assistance in identifying which stakeholders to engage, assistance on how to present and communicate about the data to a broad group of stakeholders, and assistance on developing a presentation based on the report and data file provided by OHA.
- Using health complexity data to develop models of best match care coordination and case management for children with various levels of health complexity
- Examples of activities include consultation on models of complex health management for children with health complexity, consultation on how to use the data to consider potentially valuable centralized supports for children, consultation on key supports and resources that may be needed to support children with health complexity.
- Using children’s health complexity information to guide efforts with front-line health care providers
- Examples of activities include examining aggregate population-level data by practice and by geographic regions to assess resources and health complexity management needs in the practice and/or in the community and assistance in developing presentations and communication tools for explaining the health complexity data to front-line health care providers.
Note: CCOs using the TA hours listed above can request additional data that's not contained in the children’s health complexity data reports already provided by OHA’s Office of Health Analytics (up to 3 data requests).
- CCOs must request TA hours from the Transformation Center prior to making additional data requests. CCOs can work with OPIP as part of their TA hours to determine which additional data would be beneficial to them.
- CCOs must provide a brief outline of why the data is being requested and the planned use.
- The Office of Health Analytics will determine if the data request is feasible and covered by the scope of this phase of the children’s health complexity project.
To access available TA hours, please contact Adrienne Mullock at Adrienne.P.Mullock@dhsoha.state.or.us.
Children’s health complexity data reports
The children’s health complexity data reports produced by the OHA Office of Health Analytics in collaboration with OPIP and DHS are available below. These include county-, CCO-, and statewide-level reports. Updated reports will be posted as they become available.
Memo regarding reports posted in November 2019
The Oregon Health Authority recently determined the children’s health complexity data reports posted in November 2019 contained errors related to the medical complexity calculation. The reports posted in November 2019 have been retracted until they can be updated. For more information, please see this cover letter from the OHA chief medical officer and director of health analytics.
For questions regarding the data reports, please contact the OHA Office of Health Analytics at HealthComplexity.Program@dhsoha.state.or.us.
The reports below are the 2018 state, CCO and county-level health complexity reports. The CCO reports include children enrolled in that CCO as of September 2018. The county reports include children who were listed as residents of that county in June 2016. The state-level report includes children who were listed as residents of Oregon in June 2016.
