Mid-Year Health System Report Shows ‘Continued Progress’

Thursday, January 21, 2016

 

Oregon’s mid-year Health System Transformation report was released on Wednesday, and it laid out the progress of Oregon’s coordinated care organizations on key quality an financial measures.

For the first time, the report includes two new measures: effective contraceptive use and dental sealants. This also is the first report to show results on a subset of measures for Oregonians enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan with disabilities, or with severe and persistent mental illness. 

The report states that 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.

"Oregon's continuing progress in transforming health delivery for Oregonians is clear, and we appreciate the efforts of CCOs, health care professionals and providers reflected in our mid year report," said Lynne Saxton, Director of the Oregon Health Authority. "Based on this performance, incentive payments are made to CCOs and their partners and the Oregon Health Authority will continue to provide targeted technical assistance throughout the state. By providing CCOs with this support, we bring better health and better care at lower cost to Oregon Health Plan members."

The report, which covers July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015, continues to show improvements for Oregon Health Plan members in areas such as enrollment in patient-centered primary care homes, decreased emergency department visits, and hospital admissions from chronic diseases.

A report from the Oregon Center for Public Policy shows how Oregonians rated their individual CCOs (Coordinated Care Organizations) in 2014 based on percentages of total customers who were satisfied with their service.  The report shows both adult and child approval percentages for eight different categories including how well their doctor communicated to the quality of their health plan. GoLocalPDX averaged these approval percentages to determine the CCOs where customers were the most and least satisfied overall in 2014.
