Livongo Mailed Diabetes A1c Program
EOCCO members enrolled in the Livongo Diabetes Self-Management (DSM) Program will be offered a chance to complete a mailed A1c test starting Wednesday, November 9th, 2022. EOCCO members will receive a notification to their meter after taking a reading with their blood glucose device (all members are provided with a meter upon DSM enrollment). You can watch this 2 minute video for more details on the member experience. Clinics will have an opportunity to receive the A1c results via secure email of their assigned patients who participated in the program. Contact EOCCOmetrics@modahealth.com with questions or concerns.
Q3 Language Access Report - Due 12/7
The Q3 2022 Language Access Report will be due to EOCCO on 12/7/22. This will include all visits where an interpreter was used between 7/1/22 – 9/30/22. If your site needs some assistance collecting information EOCCO can pull a report based on claims data for members who have indicated that their preferred language is not English. Please note that there may be additional members outside this list that used language assistance.

Colorectal Cancer Screening for Rural Communities ECHO
The Oregon ECHO Network is excited to offer the Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening Outreach for Rural Communities ECHO program this coming spring. This 6-session ECHO will share evidenced-based approaches for clinical practices or regional health care organizations to improve colorectal cancer screening rates.
The sessions will cover topics such as how to identify patients for screening, implementing a program that fits local needs and unique barriers, and providing patient navigation throughout the screening process. They are recruiting program champions from health care or community organizations (health plans, health systems, or clinical practices) interested in improving CRC screening rates using population outreach.
This ECHO will be held via videoconference on 1st and 3rd Thursdays from noon -1 p.m., from March 23 - June 1, 2023.
