Education and Outreach

Care Management + (CM+) trainings provide participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to better manage a chronically ill patient population and are intended for those directly involved in care management. Care managers who successfully complete the CM+ curriculum will learn and develop skills such as coordinating resources to ensure that necessary services are provided and identifying barriers to care. CM+ trainings have been held across the nation since 2007. 

Our final Comprehensive Primary Care Learning Session was well attended this October. We celebrated the accomplishments of 64 practices from across Oregon, sharing stories of providing care management for those at greatest risk, improving health care access, and tracking patient experience. The day rounded out with a celebratory cake and sparkling cider toast in honor of all the hard work accomplished over the four-year initiative.

Quality Reporting Document Architecture I (QRDA I)

The Quality Reporting Document Architecture I (QRDA I) is a file format that can be used to exchange eCQM data between systems, at a patient level. This project aims to assist practices to successfully use and export the QRDA I into the Clinical Quality Metrics Registry (CQMR). The Oregon Health Authority partnered with the CMP team to provide technical assistance to assist clinics that participate in CCO incentive measure reporting to produce reliable, accurate eCQM reports using the QRDA I standard. Our work has included: conducting clinic-specific gap analyses to assess what clinics needed to be successful in creating QRDA I files, providing at-the-elbow support to clinics, creating EHR vendor-specific user guides, and conducting EHR vendor-specific user groups.
