Triple Aim, Colorado All Payer Claims Database
Similar to the ever-changing health care landscape in Colorado, CIVHC has evolved over the years to address the key health care needs of our state. CIVHC was originally created in 2008 by Executive Order of the Governor in recognition of the need to have a systemic, statewide approach to advancing the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower costs. Much of our work in the early days centered around convening organizations and facilitating important conversations on how to improve the payment and delivery system and how data could support those efforts. We are still very active in our convening role, especially regarding our delivery system care transitions work with Healthy Transitions Colorado. Our mission has remained primarily the same which is to cultivate strategic initiatives that improve the health of Coloradans, contain costs and ensure maximum value for health care received.
However, with our work to establish the Colorado All Payer Claims Database and through collaboration with other organizations collecting essential health data in the state, our vision has taken a slightly different focus. That vision is for Colorado to be leveraging data and analytics to lead the nation in realizing the Triple Aim.
Over the last six months, we developed a robust five year strategy with five key initiatives to build on our successes and help to achieve the Triple Aim. I will talk in more detail about our strategies in my blog next month, but in order to achieve our mission and vision, we knew we first needed to have strong pillars, or values, to support our strategies. We believe the following to be foundational and key to all we do:
So what do our values mean? Basically we are focusing our efforts and raising the bar to support the Triple Aim as a trusted, objective, value-oriented, credible, comprehensive, and stakeholder-focused organization!
We know that in order to be a credible, valuable organization for the state, we must be passionate about continually strengthening our pillars to further the value and support we provide to help Colorado lead the nation in realizing the Triple Aim. Here are some of the keys to success we’ve identified relating to our values:
I welcome feedback on CIVHC’s pillars to support our strategies and how we may continue to build a highly functioning organization critical to Colorado’s success in achieving the Triple Aim. Next month I will discuss our key strategic initiatives and what that means to Colorado.
