The Colorado Office of eHealth Innovation (OeHI) is seeking stakeholder input as it updates the Health Information Technology (IT) Roadmap. The eHealth Commission and OeHI are refreshing the 2021 Health IT Roadmap in partnership with the Colorado Health Institute.
“The 2021 Health IT Roadmap will chart a path for harnessing and expanding the digital tools and services needed to advance affordability, access, and equity in healthcare,” said Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera.
“Our goal is to identify the policies, funding strategies, and technology services that Colorado can implement over the next five years in pursuit of this vision,” she continued. “A diverse coalition of Coloradans will provide on-the-ground insight into the state’s most significant health IT needs and priorities.”
Stakeholders are encouraged to fill out a short 10-question survey that will be used to help guide the Roadmap. The survey can be accessed in both English and Spanish through this link, and is located on the front page of the OeHI website. In addition, community members can register to attend one of three listening sessions.
