What is Care Coordination?
Unmet social needs such as housing, food, transportation, and safety, significantly affect the health of Coloradans, especially in communities of color and other historically marginalized communities. These unmet needs prevent folks from achieving their maximum health and well-being.
To address this gap, we are working on several projects that will coordinate care across physical, behavioral, and social health care providers to support whole person care. This will:
- Promote affordability
- Increase access
- Improve equity
Strengthening care coordination by quickly connecting people to the services they need will result in a healthier, more equitable Colorado for all.

Care Coordination Workgroup Meetings
OeHI’s Care Coordination Workgroup is on hiatus beginning in early 2023 as we develop a data governance strategy for our social-health information exchange.
This workgroup seeks to strengthen community connections to develop meaningful insights in support of equitable access to quality care and services for all Coloradans.
