Colorado’s Health IT Success: What’s Our Secret Sauce?

12:00pm - 1:00pm Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


This session will detail how the Colorado Health IT Roadmap was developed with support from the federal level, state legislators, policy makers, technology experts, government partners, care providers and patients to drive higher consumer engagement, to help create an environment for value-based payments and to support Colorado’s Triple Aim: "Best Care. Best Health. Best Value." Lessons learned will be shared that can benefit many different types of organizations hoping to change the healthcare infrastructure in their organizations, regions and states. The important role of sustainable health information exchange will be discussed, as well as ideas for gathering the right players who can share a spirit of collaboration with patients at the center.

  • Apply the learnings from Colorado’s Health IT Roadmap project to your own state or region’s Health IT infrastructure to improve the health of patients in your area
  • Start with incremental steps to tackle your state’s or region’s most pressing health issue, including leveraging existing projects and capabilities, assembling the right collaborators and identifying funding for large-scale infrastructure change
