Per capita spending has been reduced by one percent and E-R visits are down.


Alissa Robins is a spokesperson with the Oregon Health Authority.


She says the Health Authority just released a report on how these CCO's are coordinating care for the Oregon Health Plan.


"We found that E-R visits were headed downward and primary care visits were up.  And that's exactly what we want to see in the coordianted care model."


Emergency room visits decreased by 9 percent across the state.


Hospitalizations for things like congestive heart failure have dropped 29 percent.


It's believed these community health workers who help coordinate care for the Oregon Health Plan -- direct patients to primary care doctors who treat them to prevent these health emergencies.
