Health Share reports on first five years

Portland, Ore.—Five years ago, Oregon began work aimed at transforming the way health care is delivered to members of the Oregon Health Plan (OHP), Oregon's Medicaid program, by creating coordinated care organizations (CCOs) to manage health care services at the local level to improve health outcomes and reduce cost growth.
In Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties, eleven health care and social services organizations serving OHP members came together to chart a new course for delivering OHP services. The result of that collaboration was Health Share of Oregon, incorporated on April 16, 2012.
Health Share was founded and continues to be governed by eleven health care organizations serving OHP members: Adventist Health, CareOregon, Central City Concern, Clackamas County, Kaiser Permanente, Legacy Health, Multnomah County, Oregon Health & Science University, Providence Health & Services, Tuality Health Alliance and Washington County.
Here is Health Share's report of its first five years.
