Dental and Oral Health

The Dental Heath Workgroup developed the DCO-CCO Quality Measure Set in 2016, which over half of Oregon’s CCOs have selected aspects of to adopt depending on regional oral health needs.  These recommended measures have been cited by:

  • The National Academy of State Health Policy (NASHP), Integrating Oral Health into Oregon Medicaid’s Coordinated Care Model: Lessons for State Policymakers, September 2017
  • Health Management Associates, Oral Health Integration Report, June 2017
  • Oregon Health Authority, A Framework for Oral Health Access in the Oregon Health Plan, October 2016 and Oral Health in Oregon’s CCOs, March 2017
  • Medicaid Advisory Committee: Oral Health Workgroup Report, September 2016

In 2018, the workgroup plans to discuss potential revisions and updates to the measure set and revisit the framework for oral health coordination and integration within CCOs. Once completed, the framework will be shared with coordinated care stakeholders for potential implementation and evaluation in localities across the state.
