Each month, NASHP’s Healthy Child Development State Resource Center features a resource highlighting the role of screening, referral and care coordination for healthy child development.
This month’s feature is the Oregon’s Health System Transformation: CCO Metrics 2015 Final report that was released in June.
The Oregon Health Authority publishes quality metrics from Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs)—accountable care entities intended to improve quality of care and lower costs for Medicaid enrollees. The state’s CCOs report on and are incentivized to improve the percent of children screened for risks of developmental, behavioral, and social delays using standardized tools within the first 36 months of life. The 2015 final report indicates a 28% increase in screening since 2014 and shows improvement across races and ethnicities between 2014 and 2015. All CCOs met or exceeded the state’s improvement benchmark.
If you have a resource you’d like NASHP to post in the Resource Center or feature in the future, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Healthy Child Development State Resource Center is supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
