Comagine Health Awarded CPC+ Contract

November 2019 – Comagine Health, which operates the voluntary Oregon Data Collaborative, was recently re-selected to perform data aggregation for CMS’s Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) initiative for the state of Oregon. Onpoint is Comagine Health’s technical contractor for its CPC+ initiative and is responsible for both data collection from participating health plans as well as follow-on practice performance reporting.

The CPC+ program is an Alternative Payment Model sponsored by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation that aims to improve the quality, access, and efficiency of primary care in 18 participating regions. To make progress toward that goal, Medicare comes together with commercial and Medicaid payers in a given region to improve care through a coordinated set of objectives, performance measures, and financial incentives.

Onpoint collaborated with Comagine Health in the design and implementation of a statewide multi-payer data collection and reporting program to support CPC+ requirements. The image below provides a snapshot (using blinded data) of a configurable dashboard for reporting practice-level results for key performance measures. In addition to performance reporting at the provider and health plan levels, other core components of Onpoint’s Performance Reporting Portal include secure access to a review and reconsideration module, which features patient-level results, and a roster module where users document and maintain provider relationships for attribution and reporting.

For the Oregon CPC+ initiative, Onpoint is collecting data from 12 participating payers, including Medicare, and is reporting nearly 80 utilization, cost, and quality measures on behalf of Comagine Health.

“Comagine Health is very happy to be continuing our work with Onpoint, CMS, and Deloitte (CMS’s prime contractor) in support of Comprehensive Primary Care Plus,” notes Lisa Miller, Data Collaborative Manager at Comagine Health. “We know how valuable aggregated claims data is in enabling practices and medical groups to make meaningful improvements to the quality of the care they provide. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with these valued partners.”
