For Long-Term Care, Skilled Nursing and Home Health
In long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) settings, care providers are faced with enormous challenges when coordinating care for patients transitioning to and from multiple and diverse care settings. Hours can be spent making phone calls and tracking down information on patient status, lab results, medications, and treatment plans. Colorado now has a secure health information exchange (HIE) network that gives care providers in your organization access to patient records from hospitals and labs across the state. To see a list of organizations participating and the type of data is available, see Participating Providers.
Funding Available for Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Providers
Eligibility for the Colorado Care Connections Program, which offers funding for Colorado providers to join the health information exchange or increase their current participation, has been expanded. If your organization has a referral relationship with a Meaningful Use eligible provider or hospital, you are now eligible to receive this funding.
