The following RHIP Health Indicator Metrics apply to the Behavioral Health: Identification and Awareness Workgroup:
- Number of SBIRT/CRAFFT screenings provided in healthcare settings shall exceed 12% (Oregon Health Authority, 2015).
- Number of Depression screenings and follow-up care provided in healthcare settings shall exceed 25% (Oregon Health Authority, 2015).
- First year develop a baseline of successful referral and engagement in specialty care from primary care. Second year develop performance improvement benchmarks.
The Central Oregon Health Council assembled RHIP Workgroups, groups of community professionals focused on some aspect of the Regional Health Improvement Plan, in 2016 to strategize and address the RHIP Health Indicators for each area of focus.
