Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
In response to COVID-19 the Office of eHealth Innovation (OeHI) and the eHealth Commission are actively working to address state and community needs. We recognize the importance of telehealth and telemedicine solutions and we have launched focused efforts with our eHealth Commission workgroup to quickly provide recommendations to the state on reimbursement and policy changes to support clinicians and patiens using virtual solutions. Many of these recommendations have been incorporated into policies and reimbursements. The eHealth Commission Telehealth and Broadband Workgroup, led by OeHI and eHealth Commission Chair, Rachel Dixon CEO & President of Prime Health, is actively outlining recommendations for communication and outreach strategies to further support and promote virtual care. In addition to virtual care, we are committed to supporting our health information exchanges and other community organizations who provide critical services and infrastructure to clincians and patients for testing, treatment and care of COVID-19 and other health care conditions. Although we may temporarily pause or shift particular Roadmap efforts, we are committed to supporting the health of Coloradans during the COVID-19 pandemic through our infrastructure, policy, and coordination efforts. If you are interested in volunteering for a workgroup with the OeHI and the eHealth Commission during this time please email Carrie Paykoc, Director of OeHI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Colorado Health IT Roadmap
Colorado’s Health IT Roadmap is the result of an extensive and ongoing collaborative effort led by the Office of eHealth Innovation (OeHI) and steered by the eHealth Commission. Developed with input from over 1000 stakeholders from many Colorado communities, the Roadmap was recently approved by the Governor's Office and by the eHealth Commission for implementation.

Every month at the eHealth Commission Meetings, OeHI is spotlighting several initiatives and corresponding efforts. Interested in getting involved in Colorado's Health IT Roadmap efforts?
