Colorado Health Plans Collaborate to Create Data-Sharing Solution for Care Providers

Rocky Mountain Health Plans is joining six other Colorado health plans to collaborate on a multi-payer data-sharing online tool to enhance and improve the delivery of care for Colorado residents. The tool will allow health practices and providers to access patient data from one website, a change from the current process of obtaining the information from multiple websites. Ultimately, the tool will enable physicians and health plans to benchmark their practices more efficiently. The idea emerged from the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative, a national collaboration among public and private health plans to strengthen primary care. Health plans participating in the Colorado CPC are working together to make it easier for primary care practices to transition to a more integrated, family-centered approach to serving patients.
