The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) recently released two reports that help track changes over time in Oregon’s health care system. The initial quarterly dashboard presented to the Oregon Health Policy Board at its March meeting is the first in a series that will measure changes in Oregon’s health care system as recent reforms and coverage expansions take effect. The dashboard will enable policymakers, health care providers, insurers, purchasers and individuals to better navigate and improve Oregon’s health system.
OHA also released a Quarterly Report focused more specifically on coordinated care organizations (CCOs). Across Oregon, CCOs are working on a local level to transform the health care delivery system to bring better health, better care and lower costs to Oregonians. The Report provides status updates on the state’s progress towards these goals, through reports on performance data, financial data, and progress toward reaching benchmarks, beginning with 2011 baseline data.
