Children’s Health Complexity Data

Overview

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 that was shared in November and December 2018. 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 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 to support engagement of community partners in health complexity work, enhancement of care coordination for children with health complexity, and use of health complexity data to guide efforts with front-line health care providers.

TA hours for CCOs: Using data on children’s health complexity

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

TA hours for all three focus areas must be requested by October 1, 2019.

​To access available TA hours, please contact Liz Stuart at elizabeth.m.stuart@dhsoha.state.or.us.
