Oregon’s CCOs are Delivering Results

  • Prevention

    Oregon’s coordinated care organizations’ focus on preventive care through the implementation of patient-centered primary care homes has saved the system approximately $240 million between 2012 and 2014. SEE REPORT

  • Prenatal Care

    Oregon’s CCOs have improved the rate of prenatal care delivery to expecting mothers. Receiving prenatal care in the first trimester is a vital step to a healthy pregnancy and fewer low birth weight babies. SEE REPORT

  • Dental Health

    Since 2014, Oregon’s CCOs have helped increase the percentage of children ages 6-14 who received a dental sealant on a permanent molar by 65 percent. SEE REPORT

About COHO

Driving Healthcare Transformation

Oregon is recognized as a national leader in healthcare and expanding access to quality local care for Oregonians of all ages and backgrounds. The Oregon Health Plan (OHP), the state’s Medicaid program, is a prime example of Oregon’s innovative approach to reimaging healthcare from a costly and fragmented system to one that is coordinated and affordable for everyone.

Driving the success of OHP are coordinated care organizations (CCOs) that connect members to physical, behavioral, and dental care in local communities across the state. COHO has played a key role in the continued evolution of OHP and healthcare policy in Oregon since it was founded in 2005. COHO’s seven CCOs serve more than 282,000 Oregonians, amounting to 39% of CCO members outside Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties.

COHO and its healthcare partners have achieved impressive results for Oregon:

  • Expanded the number of individuals qualifying for Oregon’s Medicaid program, OHP
  • Secured legislation promoting primary and preventative care to reduce costly emergency room visits
  • Strengthened wrap-around services for vulnerable, high-risk OHP members
  • Ensured local, communities continue to drive the model of health care delivery for the state’s Medicaid population
  • Built robust coalitions to successfully advance numerous healthcare initiatives locally and statewide
