The Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) within the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) currently has two legacy data systems (CCAR and DACODS) that make it difficult, time consuming, and expensive to track co-occurring clients and ensure that those clients are receiving appropriate care. With decision item funding OBH is designing, developing, and implementing a web-based data collection system that spans the entire behavioral health system and better integrates with health care professionals, other government agencies and entities (e.g., CDHS Divisions and Offices, HCPF, CDPHE, CO Health Information Exchange, All Payer Claims Database).
This project has been ongoing for the past (2 years) where there have been many stakeholder groups, work groups, and thoughtful planning; however, the Office recognizes there may still be feedback surrounding proposed measures and data components not captured in formal meetings. As each proposed section reaches its last stages of revision, segments will be posted on the website. Please use this survey to give feedback on any posted information. Also please use this survey to ask any questions for the OBH DII developers. The DII team greatly appreciates your feedback.
Below is the current draft of the data elements for the DII. Please review and provide feedback with the survey link below.
