Oregon’s Roadmap to Value-Based Payment
Value-based payment (VBP) is one of the Oregon Health Authority’s (OHA’s) primary strategies for achieving the triple aim of better health, better care and lower costs for all Oregonians. Whereas the traditional fee-for-service payment model results in a fragmented system and unnecessary costs, transitioning to VBP increases flexibility and incentives for providers to deliver patient-centered, whole person care.
To advance VBP, OHA developed a
VBP Roadmap for Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) to ensure at least 70% of their payments to providers are in the form of a VBP by 2024. The VBP Roadmap also includes VBP models in key
care delivery areas (CDAs), infrastructure payments for
Patient-Centered Primary Care Homes (PCPCHs), and strategies to promote equity in VBP design.
The VBP roadmap was informed by a significant public engagement process, including a
CCO VBP Workgroup,
VBP provider survey, and statewide public stakeholder meetings.

Webinar: Using value-based payment to reduce health disparities
National expert Marshall Chin, MD, leads an engaging webinar to help CCOs and other health system partners apply lessons from care transformation and value-based payment models gleaned from systems throughout the U.S. to aid in reducing health disparities.
VBP toolkit for coordinated care organizations
The VBP toolkit supports CCOs in achieving the expectations outlined in the VBP Roadmap.
The toolkit includes three components:
Technical guidance and reporting templates to clarify reporting requirements and provide guidance on eligible payment models and CDA specifications;
Care delivery area (CDA) resources to support CCOs in these areas; and
Model contract language to assist CCOs in their VBP contracting process.
