Announcing Colorado’s State Health IT Roadmap

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper approved and released Colorado’s Health IT Roadmap, a collaborative effort led by the Office of eHealth Innovation and steered by the eHealth Commission. The Roadmap provides strategic direction for state health IT investments and includes actionable initiatives. 

Bonny Cline, Advocacy Chair of the HIMSS Colorado Chapter, is fully in support of this Roadmap and states, “The complete portfolio of initiatives aims to improve and enhance existing health IT infrastructure and leverage innovation to achieve Colorado’s Triple Aim of the best care for the best value to attain the best health for all Coloradans.” Initiatives focus on stakeholder engagement, governance, resources, privacy and security, innovation, and technology. 

Cline states the Chapter “would like to recognize and officially thank those working at the state and local levels and the 1,000 stakeholders who contributed their progressive vision, open-minded awareness, and dogged commitment to healthcare IT.” Click here to learn more.
