CCO Oregon programs include workgroups, retreats, and the annual conference and meeting. Currently, the workgroup and retreat focus areas are:
- Dental and Oral Health
- Behavioral Health
- Social Determinants of Health
- Data Use in Coordinated Care
The workgroups meet regularly, have a co-chair(s), and are facilitated by CCO Oregon staff. Retreats happen a few times a year by program area and are hosted by the workgroups for a larger audience with a greater allocation of time. The agendas for each workgroup or retreat align with state-level policy discussions, national trends, and the interests of our members and the populations they serve.
The discussions CCO Oregon hosts lead to a lot of shared learning, often more questions, and sometimes potential shared action. The conversations touch on gaps and opportunities related to metrics, integration models, funding sustainability, alternative payment strategies and risk-based models, health information technology and health information exchanges, and more. Collaborative statements and comments may be submitted to decision-making bodies, policy boards, state and federal agencies, and/or legislative committees. Best practices and recommendations may inform the work our members due in their own organizations and communities.
