The Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) Division is developing a comprehensive behavioral health electronic data system to improve care, control cost and share information. This data system improvement project is called COMPASS. COMPASS includes the Measures and Outcomes Tracking System (MOTS).

MOTS Implementation Estimated Timelines:

  • Registration is open and ready for provider set up and input as of 10-15-2013
  • Client Entry is ready for client data input as of 12/5/2013
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) will be ready to begin testing in February

What's new? - Registration NOW OPEN

AMH is ready to open registration of the new Measures and Outcomes Tracking System (MOTS) that will be replacing the CPMS system. The first step to submitting data to this new system is for all behavioral health providers to register and set up their profiles.

3 Things you need to do before you register:

  1. Obtain an Oregon Medicaid Provider Number if you don't already have one (see Policy below)
  2. Determine who will be your agency system administrator (Checklist of responsibilities and duties)
  3. Watch the MOTS Registration/Administration Webinar (see below)

Additionally, there are helpful documents to review as you prepare for this transition to the new data collection system available on the Enhanced Data Capture web page, along with upcoming webinars specific to data submission methods.


MOTS Client Entry Tool Is Ready - Sign Up for Training Now

The MOTS Client Entry Tool is available for providers that wish to submit their data using this method. The COMPASS project team will be conducting a classroom training for providers on Thursday, May 1st, 2014, 8:30am - noon in Portland.   Class size is limited and on a first come first serve basis, so don't delay. Email MOTS.Support@state.or.us if you are interested in attending. For more information on resources and tools for Client Entry Users is available on the Enhanced Data Capture web page.

What are the different components of COMPASS?

AMH’s OWITS Behavioral Electronic Health Records (EHR):

OWITS is available to all publicly funded behavioral health providers or required reporters (ex: DUII, methadone or detox providers) for a low cost. The advantage of using the OWITS EHR is that agencies will no longer need to submit CPMS data to AMH. AMH will automatically pull all required data from the system and ensure that all data requirements are included within the system. Timeline: Currently implementing.

Enhanced Data Capture:

This is the electronic exchange of data with AMH. There will be three methods for data submission:

OWITS EHR: This method is available to Agencies and Facilities that use the OWITS EHR. AMH is working with our contractor FEi to automatically pull the information from OWITS and upload it into MOTS. Agencies and Facilities will not need to do anything for this process to occur.

Electronic Data Interchange/Transfer: This method is available to Agencies and Facilities that have an electronic medical or health record that captures the AMH required data elements. Agencies and Facilities will need to program their system to create a defined data file that is transmitted to AMH via a secure file transfer protocol (sftp).

MOTS Client Entry: This method is available to Agencies and Facilities that do not have an EHR or will not be updating their EHR to include all of the AMH required data elements. This is a web-based direct data entry method of entering the data into MOTS. This was implemented December 2013.
