Breakfast Forum Looks at the Future of CCOs

With approval of the new federal waiver, we're bringing together a panel to talk about what lies ahead.

Now that Oregon has had its federal waiver renewed for another five years, what’s ahead for the state’s 16 coordinated care organizations? Will for-profit organizations be excluded from the next contracts? Will there be more transparency in how CCOs are spending their money? How about the social determinants of health such as stable housing, transportation and health disparities?

Oregon Health Forum is bringing together a panel of experts on Wednesday, Feb. 22 to discuss these probing questions. Breakfast begins at 7 a.m. followed by a panel discussion from 7:30-9 a.m. The event takes place at the Multnomah Athletic Club.

Our panelists include:

  • Eric Hunter, CEO of CareOregon who also chairs the board of HealthShare of Oregon
  • Lynne Saxton, Director of the Oregon Health Authority

Other panelists will be announced shortly.

Our moderator will be Greg Van Pelt with the Oregon Health Leadership Council.
