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; requests for technical assistance were due by June 30, 2020.
For more background on this data project, please visit
OPIP's project page.
Current resources and opportunities
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: Technical assistance hours were granted to all CCOs that made requests through June 30, 2020; those hours can be used through December 31, 2020.
Technical assistance activities are 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.

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. The reports include:
- County reports
- CCO reports
- Statewide report
Only children enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan (OHP, Medicaid) and Children's Health Insurance Program are included in the data and reports.
Memo regarding reports posted in August 2020
For more information about the reports, please see this
cover letter from the OHA chief medical officer and director of health analytics.
The reports below are the 2020 state, CCO and county-level health complexity reports. The statewide report contains data for children, 0 through 20 years old, who were residing in Oregon as of July 2020. The CCO reports contains data for children, 0 through 20 years old, who were enrolled in that CCO as of June 2020. The county reports contain data for children, 0 through 20 years old, who resided in that county as of July 2020.
See the data dictionary for details about data sources used for the social complexity indicators.
**Please note this correction to the August 2020 health complexity data reports**
– The reports incorrectly state that the most
conservative version of the Pediatric Medical Complexity Algorithm (PMCA) was used. The data reports were run using the more
conservative version of the PMCA. Apologies for the error. Learn more about the PMCA
