Incentive measures were developed by the State of Oregon to help motivate EOCCO providers to deliver high-quality services that improve the health of your patients and the surrounding community.
High-quality health metrics show how well EOCCO is improving care, increasing access to care, reducing health disparities, and attempting to control the rising cost of health care.
The Oregon Health Authority’s Metrics and Scoring Committee has created outcome and quality measures. The funds from a quality pool are awarded to EOCCO based on the annual performance of these measures.
