The Hospital Transformation Performance
Program (HTPP) is established by the Oregon Health Authority (Authority) to
allow hospitals to earn incentive payments by meeting specific performance
standards that advance health systems transformation, reduce hospital costs,
and improve patient safety.
(a) The total
amount of funds available through the program is equal to the federal financial
participation received from one-percentage point of the assessment. Hospitals
that pay an assessment on their net patient revenue, as required by OAR

(b) The performance standards shall be
established by the Authority based on recommendations of the Hospital
Performance Advisory Committee (Committee) and as approved by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Committee shall be appointed by the
Authority director and comprise four hospital representatives, two Coordinated
Care Organization (CCO) representatives, and three members with expertise in
measuring health outcomes.
(2) To qualify for incentive payments,
eligible hospitals must meet the performance standards and measures as
determined by the Authority.
The Authority will:
(a) Establish baselines
and targets for performance measures;
(b) Post the data specs and formats, forms to
be used, schedule and frequency of data submission, frequency of incentive
distributions, and other technical information on the Authority's website once
performance data submitted by hospitals;
(d) Determine if hospitals achieve targeted
goals or demonstrate sufficient improvement to qualify for incentive payments;
