2014 Principle Statements Announced, Mutual Accountability Measures Table to be Convened

CCO Oregon held its 2014 Annual Meeting on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, in Salem, Ore., where it unveiled its 2014 Principle Statements. CCO Oregon convened work groups over the past six months focused on: dental integration; primary care behavioral health integration; and public policy. Over the past six months, these work groups developed collaborative guiding principles, which moved through CCO Oregon’s process, including approval by its CCO partners and Board of Directors.

At the Annual Meeting, CCO Oregon members also had the opportunity to engage in direction setting for 2015, participating in small group discussions on current issues for CCOs and stakeholders. During the Delegate Convention, member organizations provided comments on the results from the small group discussions. Member feedback will help shape additional work groups, conferences and other opportunities for 2015. 


Based off prior feedback from its CCO partners, CCO Oregon gauged interest from its membership on convening a conversation focused on mutual accountability measures with various stakeholders, including the Oregon Health Authority: "In order to ensure each CCO has its greatest chance for successful health transformation, should CCO Oregon use its standing as a neutral convener of organizations supportive of the Triple Aim to assemble a group of stakeholders including the Oregon Health Authority to review mutual accountability measures?" 


Membership passed a motion for CCO Oregon to convene a conversation. As the neutral convener of organizations supportive of the Triple Aim, CCO Oregon will assemble a group of stakeholders including the Oregon Health Authority to review mutual accountability measures. CCO Oregon will invite both member and non-member CCOs to participate in its transparent process.


The goals of these conversations will be to identify performance improvement measures that can be supported by CCO Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority and other stakeholders. 


The final portion of the Annual Meeting was reserved for the Board of Directors election.Jack Dempsey was elected to fill a Sustaining Seat and John Duke was elected to fill a Supporting Board Seat.
