eHealth Commission


The eHealth Commission was created to provide advice and guidance to the Office of eHealth Innovation on advancing Health Information Technology in Colorado.

The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) serves as the fiscal agent leveraging the state’s procurement, contracting, and accounting established processes to manage solicitations, contracts, and payments to vendors and organizations on behalf of the new eHealth Innovation Office.  In addition, HCPF provides interim leadership for the new Office of eHealth Innovation until the new Director, Mary Anne Leach is on-boarded in December of 2016.

The Office of eHealth Innovation is funded through existing resources provided through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. In addition, future investments in Health IT projects will be funded through existing funding made through ARRA HITECH, other grant awards, and partnerships with organizations that support Colorado’s Health IT infrastructure.
