The Foundation organizes its work into three community outcome areas: Healthy Living, Health Coverage and Health Care.
Within these three areas, we invest our resources in initiatives that work to improve the health of Coloradans in the following areas:
Promote Healthy Communities
Promote a culture of healthy communities by ensuring access to healthy food, safe options for exercise and evidence-based care for chronic disease.
Develop Healthy Schools
Expand the number of public schools and preschools that have health and nutrition education, physical education, healthy food in cafeterias and vending machines, opportunities for physical activity and health care services.
Ensure Adequate and Affordable Coverage
Develop sustainable financing solutions to expand coverage, support policy changes through advocacy, and facilitate state implementation of federal health care.
Optimize Coverage in Public Programs
Increase adequate coverage available to Coloradans who are uninsured by simplifying the enrollment process, increasing eligibility and expanding benefits through Medicaid, CHP+ and other public insurance programs.
Improve Health Care Delivery
Promote coordinated systems of care across the health care spectrum. Coordinated care is the provision of health services and information that meets a person’s needs. Integrated care is the delivery of such care.
Accelerate the Adoption of Health Information Technology
Raise the implementation rate of HIT, including electronic health records, health information exchange and personal health records, to facilitate high-quality health care that is coordinated within and across health care systems and providers.
Build Health Care Professionals Workforce
Attract and train health professionals to deliver quality, coordinated primary care.
