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.
