Behavioral Health Metrics and Incentives Committee

OHA accepting applications for Behavioral Health Metrics and Incentives Committee

The Oregon Health Authority is seeking applicants to serve on a new Behavioral Health Metrics and Incentives Committee. The committee will establish quality metrics for providing behavioral health services and create incentives designed to improve the quality of those services to help transform Oregon’s behavioral health system and meet OHA’s goal of eliminating health inequities by the year 2030. People with lived experience with behavioral health needs and people from communities disproportionately impacted by health inequities, such as communities of color and the LGBTQIA+ community, will be central to this work and are eagerly encouraged to apply.

OHA invites applications from people who represent the following perspectives:

  • Community members who identify as behavioral health service users and / or people with lived experience. This includes youth, adults, and family members of youth aged 15 or younger who use behavioral health services.
  • People who identify as:
    • Black, Indigenous and other people of color
    • Members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community
  • Youth or young adults in transition (up to age 25) with lived experience in the Children’s System of Care in Oregon.
  • Current members of the Oregon Consumer Advisory Council
  • Current members of the Measure 110 Oversight and Accountability Council
  • Current members of the System of Care Advisory Council
  • Tribal government representatives
  • Representatives of organizations that advocate on behalf of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities
  • CCO behavioral health directors
  • Representatives of Community Mental Health Programs
  • Behavioral health service providers
  • Data analysis experts

Committee members will serve for four years. Members who are not paid by an employer to serve on the council will be provided a small stipend to compensate for their time. Members will need to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and excuse themselves from decisions where appropriate.
