Coordinated Care Organizations - CCOsFrom the Oregon Health Authority: A coordinated care organization is a network of all types of health care providers (physical health care, addictions and mental health care and dental care providers) who work together in their local communities to serve people who receive health care coverage under the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid). CCOs focus on prevention and helping people manage chronic conditions, like diabetes. This helps reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and gives people support to be healthy.

Registered Dietitians (Registered Dietitian Nutritionists) can improve patient outcomes - and save health care dollars.
Research indicates for every dollar invested in the RDN-led lifestyle modification program there is a return of nearly $15 in health care costs.
