As of January 2022, CCOs have a quality incentive measure to support health aspects of kindergarten readiness: system-level social-emotional health. This metric focuses on identifying and connecting young children with social emotional health needs to services. The four components to this measure are:
- Social-emotional health reach metric data review and assessment
Asset map of existing social-emotional health services and resources
- CCO-led cross-sector community engagement
Action plan to improve social-emotional health service capacity and access
In 2025, the system-level social-emotional health metric will be replaced by a child-level metric. The Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership (OPIP) will be facilitating input sessions to seek feedback on options for the new metric. See full details here.
