CCO Oregon is a statewide, nonprofit 501(c)(3) member association that brings together experts to drive innovation and systems change for coordinated care.
Our members advocate for and develop strategies that work toward a model of care that integrates physical, behavioral, and oral health in the clinical setting and acknowledges how much of our health is impacted by factors outside of the clinic, the social determinants of health or health-related social needs. Further, the model leverages the relationship between health care provider and payer to optimize quality care, lower costs, improve outcomes, and maintain a sustainable workforce that is patient-centered and culturally responsive. CCO Oregon launched as a membership association in 2012 and has been advocating for the coordinated care model ever since.
Don’t let the name fool you.
Coordinated care in Oregon is often referred to as the hub and spokes model — at CCO Oregon, we convene the hubs and the spokes. Coordinated care subject matter experts from organizations across Oregon come together for meaningful conversations that not only spark ideas, but also the plans to see them to fruition. They are innovators who are thinking ahead, exploring cutting-edge solutions, and driving systems-level change.
One of CCO Oregon’s strengths is the breadth of our membership, which includes various provider types, community-based partners, payers, hospitals, clinics, associations, and coordinated care organizations that deliver health and social services within the coordinated care model. Our members serve other states, Medicaid and non-Medicaid markets, and rural, urban, and frontier constituencies, and most of them have been doing this work for decades.
CCO Oregon’s vision is lower costs, increased access to quality care and health-related social needs, improved outcomes, and a sustainable workforce across the delivery system through the widespread implementation of the coordinated care model.
CCO Oregon convenes payers, providers, and other care delivery partners to identify and advance evidence-based, stakeholder-driven strategies that support coordinated care and health transformation.
