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.

A platform to share physical, behavioral, and social health information between providers involved in whole-person care, composed of both a statewide unifying architecture and regional hubs

  • OeHI and the eHealth Commission are committed to the development of a Social Health Information Exchange (SHIE) infrastructure. This is an interoperable and flexible infrastructure that supports coordinated whole person care across the physical, social, and behavioral health domains. 
  • SHIE is a model that connects the social factors that influence health with a patient’s physical and behavioral health care. Through this model, regardless of where a patient seeks care, they can be referred directly to other providers or services in the community that match their needs. Regardless of where a patient seeks care, they should be able to access or be referred to services that meet their physical, behavioral, and social health needs! 
  • The SHIE aims to reduce provider time spent on paperwork while also providing them with more whole person information about their patients. This will allow them to spend more time assessing a patient’s complex needs and referring them to applicable services and supports, paving the way for improvements in health equity. This also means that patients will experience improved quality of care, less time and money spent at the doctor’s office, and increased access to the services and support they need.
