PORTLAND, Ore., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the organization's efforts to improve care and physician practices in Oregon, The Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation (Quality Corp) is receiving the Chartered Value Exchange designation from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

HHS is recognizing 14 community-based organizations around the country as the first Chartered Value Exchanges, and Secretary Leavitt will personally recognize Quality Corp during his Portland visit. The organization is being recognized for taking clear actions to convene community purchasers, health plans, providers and consumers to advance value-driven health care.

Specifically, Quality Corp is focused on the following efforts:

-- Giving people information that helps them be better partners with their

doctors in managing their own health.

-- Learning how doctors and hospitals how they can make improvements in

caring for patients.

-- Helping purchasers get the information they need in order to buy high

value health care.

-- Encouraging systems to get patients' information to where it is needed

for good care.

"Quality health care happens when doctors, nurses and patients are all on the same team with the same expectations," said Nancy Clarke, Executive Director of the Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation. "Information about cost and quality, provided in the right way, can encourage a much stronger partnership between patients and their provider teams, leading to better health."

The Quality Corp, in addition to other groups receiving the designation, will receive access to Medicare provider performance information for their communities, which can be combined with similarly calculated private-sector results to produce
