Oregon CCO Metric
The Coordinated Care Organizations throughout Oregon manage the care for our Medicaid population and are tasked to improve health outcomes.
The Oregon Metrics and Scoring Committee added “Effective Contraception among women at risk for unintended pregnancy” as an incentivized metric for Coordinated Care Organizations and 2017 will be the 3rd year running. One Key Question is the #1 recommended clinical strategy to meet this metric for your health center.
We advocated for Oregon to be the first in the nation to adopt a preventive reproductive health metric to pave the way for ensuring women are receiving proactive care.
