Webinar: Maximizing System-Level Data to Address Health and Social Complexity in Children – Spotlight on Oregon

Tuesday, April 2, 2019
2-3 p.m. (EST)

An innovative methodology using system-level data to identify children with health complexity, based on medical and social complexity, is transforming how Oregon officials consider improving quality of care. Learn about this new standardized approach, developed by the Oregon Pediatric Improvement Partnership and Oregon Health Authority, and how it has helped inform priority areas, potential policy improvements, investments and partnerships in support of children with health complexity. Speakers will provide an overview of the statewide population-level health complexity findings and share how the data has been utilized by Oregon’s coordinated care organizations.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to review the pre-webinar reading material, Putting a Spotlight on Children with Health Complexity Overview of a Novel and Applied Methodology to Identify Children with Health Complexity In Order to Inform Investments and Improvements and Health Complexity in Children- Statewide Summary Report.
