Achieving the Triple Aim
In 2011, the State of Oregon changed how people received Medicaid through the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), and began the process of establishing local Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs).
Today, most OHP members are part of a CCO, local health plans that manage their members’ health services. CCOs were created to provide integrated, patient-centered care to all OHP members. Instead of just treating you when you get sick, they can work with you to keep you healthy and manage any existing health conditions.
For example, CCOs may offer added services for OHP members who have chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma or other health needs. CCOs also focus on prevention, which may lead to less unnecessary trips to the hospital or emergency room.
Today, there are 16 CCOs operating in communities around Oregon. Below are links to background information about CCOs and about Health Share of Oregon.
