CCO Oregon creates space for payers and providers to engage in action-oriented discourse that leads to strategies and solutions that work toward lower costs, better care, improved outcomes, a sustainable workforce, and meeting social needs across the care delivery system. CCO Oregon does this primarily through our workgroups, retreats, ad hoc meetings, and annual conference.
Our members – coordinated care practitioners and experts – from organizations across the state 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 and exploring cutting-edge solutions, and driving systems change. We frequently provide feedback and formal comment or testimony to state and federal decision-making bodies that determine policy, evaluation, and practice. We also welcome our partners at the Oregon Health Authority and other non-member to organizations to share their work, proposals, and ideas in forums with our members. Collaboration with other associations and coalitions is also frequent.

The conversations CCO Oregon facilitates align with state-level policy discussions, national trends, and the interests of our members and the populations they serve. We currently maintain workgroups in several key areas of coordinated care: behavioral health, CCO contracting and compliance, government affairs, oral health, OHP pharmacy, and social determinants of health.
