Social Determinants of Health

CCO Oregon’s Social Determinants of Health work group focuses on policies and models that advance effective collaboration and investment to mitigate the social determinants across the coordinated care delivery system. Ongoing areas of focus include maximizing current policy options, recommended metrics, informing guidance on health-related services spending, and potential risk-adjustment models that incorporate the social determinants of health.

The work group frequently collaborates with the Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB) and Medicaid Advisory Committee (MAC) to provide comment on the role of coordinated care in mitigating the adverse effects of the social determinants of health on Oregonians.
