About Us

The Office of eHealth Innovation was formed as a direct result of a consensus between public and private stakeholders on the need of Health IT governance. This group of stakeholders formed the Health IT State Designated Entity Action Committee and helped define the purpose of OeHI as a State Designated Entity (SDE).

 

In November 2015, Governor John Hickenlooper signed Executive Order B 2015-008 to officially create the Governor’s Office of eHealth Innovation and the eHealth Commission, with fiscal and administrative support from Health Care Policy and Financing (Health First Colorado).

 

The Office of eHealth Innovation is responsible for defining, maintaining, and evolving Colorado's Health IT strategy concerning care coordination, data access, healthcare integration, payment reform and care delivery.

To ensure that OeHI and the eHealth Commission create a strategy that reflects the wants and needs of Coloradans, they have created a Health IT Roadmap, which defines strategic initiatives to close the gaps in healthcare for patients and providers.

Not only is this roadmap key to modernizing Colorado’s health care systems, it is also instrumental for identifying and reducing the redundancy of efforts between public and private spheres of the healthcare industry.
