Care Delivery Organization (CDO)

A care delivery organization (CDO) is a legal entity that delivers healthcare services and products to the populace. The Mayo Clinic and the Veterans Health Administration are examples of well-known CDOs. Most people living in urban and suburban areas have access to an healthcare organization that fits the CDO definition; acess in rural area may be limited.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Care Delivery Organization (CDO)

CDOs fit into two major categories. First, there are large physician groups, which often integrate physical and mental patient care and hospitals. Then, there are smaller group practices, which usually do not have the organizational resources to be considered a CDO. However, SMBs can use CDOs as a guide for providing multiple related services instead of focusing on one. For instance, some smaller pharmacies fill prescriptions, offer basic health monitoring services and provide vaccinations.
