  • Clinical performance measurements/metrics
  • Integrated program development
  • Evidence-based clinical guidelines with focus toward optimal patient standards of care
  • Early intervention and prevention of progressive levels of care
  • Coordination of care with community partners
  • Projects and practices addressing elimination of disparities in access and quality of care
  • Treatment outcomes related to race, culture, language and disabilities
  • Health equity concerns

BHASC Workgroups:
Adult Severely and Persistently Mentally Ill (SPMI), Behavioral Health Training & Education, Early Childhood Mental Health (ECMH), Older Adult Behavioral Health (OAW), Substance Use Disorder (SUDS), and Behavioral Health Access.
The Community Resilience Workgroup (CRW)  has been developed in response to the impacts that various underrepresented and disadvantaged populations will be experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goals of this group will be to enhance universal resilience and promote recovery from trauma and stress caused by the virus and its economic consequences.

All Oregon Health Plan contracted behavioral health providers are invited to send a representative. Family, youth, and other members of the CCOs are also invited to attend. Please contact Lucy Zammarelli  ([email protected]) to be added to the meeting invite or for more information.
