Oregon established Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) in 2012 to transform health care delivery statewide. Serving nearly one million people on the Oregon Health Plan under Oregon Health Authority oversight, CCOs strive to improve health and reduce costs by coordinating flexible, innovative services. Oregon’s next phase of health care transformation, known as “CCO 2.0,” launched in January 2020 and includes a goal to “Increase strategic spending by CCOs on social determinants of health, health equity and disparities in communities, including encouraging effective community partnerships.” What does CCO 2.0’s focus on social determinants and health equity mean, in practice, for community partners? How can housing and service providers collaborate with CCOs to increase stability and health for Oregonians? This session will highlight updates and partnership opportunities with CCOs related to housing and homelessness, including examples from Southern Oregon and the Portland metro area.
