Colorado's 2021 Health Information Technology Roadmap
The Office of eHealth Innovation and eHealth Commission, in partnership with the Colorado Health Institute, released the 2021 Colorado Health Information Technology (IT) Roadmap on November 29th. The 2021 Roadmap was approved by the Offices of the Governor and Lt. Governor, as well as the eHealth Commission, and will serve as Colorado’s North Star- Health IT strategy, charting a path for harnessing and expanding the digital tools and services needed to advance affordability, access, and equity in health care. The Roadmap details various strategies and recommendations for policies, technology services, and funding needed to accomplish these goals by 2024.
Thank you to all participating stakeholders, Commissioners, and public and private partners for your ongoing insight and input throughout this process. Your engagement was imperative in assessing current and future needs in policy, funding, and technology, and we appreciate your ample feedback on strategies for sustaining these efforts in the future. Community engagement activities included more than 50 stakeholder meetings; virtual regional learning collaborative telemedicine meetings; community meetings in Haxtun and Trinidad; two virtual listening sessions open to the public; an online survey; and the Annual Innovation Summit in September 2021. We look forward to working with all of you to accomplish these BOLD goals.
