System-level social-emotional health metric: technical assistance

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:

  1. Social-emotional health reach metric data review and assessment
  2. Asset map of existing social-emotional health services and resources
  3. CCO-led cross-sector community engagement
  4. 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.

2023-2024 technical assistance

The Transformation Center is contracting with OHSU-ORPRN (Oregon Rural Practice-based Research Network) to facilitate technical assistance and support for implementation of the system-level social-emotional health metric. See this flyer for full details and registration.

Webinars, learning collaboratives and resources for CCOs and partners will focus on the following areas:

  • Communications for parents and providers about social-emotional health for children 0–5 years old
  • Understanding the social-emotional health system and making improvements
  • Engaging new social-emotional health partners with the health system (could include billing/coding, community information exchange, using data for community engagement, etc.)

2022-2023 technical assistance

The Transformation Center worked with Artemis Consulting to facilitate a virtual learning collaborative to support the CCO system-level social-emotional health metric implementation. The series was structured around the four components of the metric: 1) Analyzing the reach data report; 2) Asset mapping; 3) Community engagement; 4) Action planning.
