Colorado Grant Programs
Our Transformation Support Services team can assist you with participating in Colorado grant opportunities to improve health information exchange and quality reporting for your practice.
Practice Innovations in Opioid Management
The consequences of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) have hit rural Colorado communities hard. With little to no access to treatment, overdose deaths have continued to rise.
In response to the need, Practice Innovations in Opioid Management (Implementing Technology and Medication Assisted Treatment and Team Training in Rural Colorado), a statewide initiative, was developed to not only disseminate information and support within communities but also to increase the number of providers with a DEA X waiver. This enables waivered providers to prescribe Buprenorphine for OUD with the end goal of increasing access to treatment and saving lives by implementing a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program in their practices.
CORHIO’s Transformation Support Services Managers provide training to practices about OUD, addiction and MAT. The training gives practices knowledge and tools to adopt a comprehensive MAT program through on-going practice support and facilitation.
Facilitating Alcohol Screening and Treatment (FAST)
FAST is a 9-month facilitated quality improvement program to address unhealthy alcohol use in patients. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has funded Colorado efforts to help primary care practices increase screening and response to patients’ unhealthy alcohol use.
Participating practices will receive evidence-based interventions to help patients with unhealthy alcohol use, training for staff, medical providers and behavioral health professionals on Screening, Brief Intervention, Medication Assisted Treatment, and, when necessary Referral to Treatment (SBIRT plus MAT) for alcohol use and the support of a highly trained practice coach.
Innovation Support Project (ISP)
This program is accepting a total of 80 primary care practices per year (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and OB/GYN) who provide comprehensive primary care and serve the Medicaid population. The aim is to improve the quality of care and enhance success in alternative payment models such as the Medicaid Alternative Payment Model (APM) for Primary Care.
Participating practices with receive Practice Facilitation support in adopting and sustaining telehealth services as well as access to experts in billing, coding, workflows, and documentation from selected partners like CORHIO. Also available is assistance with clinical quality measure data extraction and improvement.
Under the Colorado Medication Consistency Project (Senate Bill 17-019), CORHIO is working with county jails to implement data exchange that allows the jail staff to access health and medication specific information. Allowing jails to connect to the health information exchange ensures inmates are treated efficiently, resulting in better health outcomes during incarceration and when inmates are transitioned back into the community.
CORHIO’s Transformation Support Services team assists in PatientCare 360 implementation to improve continuity of care for inmates. CORHIO provides support during the evolving use of PatientCare 360 from intake to sick calls and discharge back into the community.
