Colorado Care Connections Program

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing and CORHIO have partnered on the Colorado Care Connections Program to onboard providers to the health information exchange and reduce their financial burden. Your practice or hospital may be eligible to participate in this program that expands health information exchange in Colorado.

The program includes:

  • CORHIO implementation fee waived ($5,000-$15,000 value) to join the CORHIO network and receive patient results from hospitals and labs across the state.
  • Choose your products - use the funding for the products that work for your organization, including PatientCare 360®, which is our web-based portal for patient data, Results Delivery, which delivers patient results directly to your EHR, and Notifications, which are clinical data alerts based on your patient panel
  • An incentive (up to $5,000) when your practice/hospital is successfully sending clinical documents, such as care summaries or CCDs, into the HIE within one year—see this overview for more information on CCDs
  • Upgraded HIE capabilities for current CORHIO participants, including Clinical Document Exchange and Notifications

Time is limited to take advantage of this program. To learn more, call 720-285-3200 or email

What our participants are saying:

“The biggest problem that I see in medicine is we duplicate things. So many times a test has been done, it’s even been resulted and the patient didn’t recall having the test or didn’t know what the test was or didn’t know the results and we duplicate it. And I’ve seen studies of just how much money we’re wasting reduplicating efforts that have already been made. And with CORHIO, I don’t have to redo the MRI.”
