E-R  visits are down 17 percent in 2013 from two years earlier.  Hospitalizations for heart and lung problems were also down.

 

But there were lower scores on cervical cancer screenings and diabetes complications.

 

These results were revealed to the Oregon Health Authority on Tuesday.

 

It's improtant that E-R visits in Oregon show a dramatic drop since Governor Kitzhaber secured almost 2 billion from the federal government on the promise that these CCO's would lower costs for medicaid patients.
