Care Coordination


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.

January 2024 Report: Recommendations to Support the Data Landscape of Colorado’s Local Public Health Agencies

To better understand local public health agencies’ (LPHAs’) data strategies, needs, and gaps, stakeholder interviews were conducted with 19 LPHAs from across the state. Participating LPHAs were representative in terms of geography and population size, and included representation from frontier, rural, and urban counties.

Using the interview findings, OeHI and CDPHE identified action steps that the State can pursue to improve the data sharing landscape for LPHAs in Colorado. Our recommendations center around equity, data governance, and engagement.

This work was completed in partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Colorado Community Managed Care Network (CCMCN), and Colorado Association of Local Public Health Officials (CALPHO).
