Oregon's Health System Transformation 2013 Performance Report

The report lays out how Oregon's coordinated care organizations (CCO) performed on quality measures in 2013. This is the fourth such report since coordinated care organizations were launched in 2012 and the first to show a full year of data. This report also shows the quality measures broken out by race and ethnicity.

In addition, based on a full year's performance measurement, the coordinated care model is entering a new phase - for the first time part of the reimbursement for the services CCOs performed for Oregon Health Plan members will be based on how well they performed on 17 of these key health care measurements. 

Under the coordinated care model, the Oregon Health Authority held back 2 percent of the monthly payments to the CCOs which were put into a common "quality pool." To earn their full payment, CCOs had to meet improvement targets on at least 12 of the 17 measures and have at least 60 percent of their members enrolled in a patient-centered primary care home. All CCOs showed improvements in some number of the measures and 11 out of 15 CCOs met 100 percent of their improvement targets. 

In addition, coordinated care organizations are continuing to hold down costs. Oregon is staying within the budget that meets its commitment to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to reduce the growth in spending by 2 percentage points per member, per year.
