Healthcare officials in Oregon know that changes needed to be made to the Oregon Health Plan. It serves the state's low income; but it's model was not sustainable to serve the growing numbers of people on the rolls. Coordinated care organizations, or CCO's, will help coordinate hospitals, doctors and other providers that serve the state's 600,000 patients. Robin Henderson with the Central Oregon Health Council feels these CCO’s could be a model for the nation. “It could be for everybody. There could be other state funded health insurance agencies in the future. I could see this being open to anyone who's got interest.” Last week the Central Oregon Health Council held public forums to answer questions on how the new CCO's would work. It's believed better coordinated care will result in better outcomes and lower costs.
