Behavioral Health Quality and Performance Improvement Plan

Overview

The Behavioral Health Quality and Performance Improvement Plan will monitor and assess key mental health services provided to adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). The Plan continues to track outcome measures outlined in the Oregon Performance Plan, which was in effect from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019.

The Plan was developed to ensure delivery of community services that help adults with SPMI live in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs, achieve positive outcomes, and prevent their unnecessary institutionalization. It contains several measures that inform indicators of performance improvement. Currently these measures are:

  • Assertive Community Treatment Services;
  • Supported housing;
  • Oregon State Hospital discharges and linkages to services;
  • Acute psychiatric care discharges and linkages to services;
  • Emergency department services;
  • Secure Residential Treatment Facility length of stay;
  • Quality and performance improvement; and
  • Data reporting.

In future years the Plan will expand to include other domains of behavioral health services administered by OHA. The Plan's term extends from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2022.
