CIVHC Partners, Delivery System Redesign, Payment Reform, Triple Aim, All Payer Claims Database
February 13th marked five years since Governor Ritter signed the Executive Order to develop the Center for Improving Value in Health Care. In those five years since CIVHC was merely an idea born out of the 208 Blue Ribbon Commission on Health Care Reform, much has changed for our organization and our state as a whole. The future of health care in Colorado looks bright, and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce several new staff and highlight some new resources we made available this month in support of Colorado efforts.
