We’re committed to evaluating our impact on Colorado’s health system.
We work on complex issues that take a long time to solve. We have a steadfast commitment to evaluating the impact and effectiveness of our work so we can adjust over time. Every three years, we develop a comprehensive strategic framework and underlying theory of change (PDF) that guides our work and priorities. This work is expected to evolve, so it is important that we continue to revisit underlying assumptions, how partners may have shifted their focus, or if new scenarios have emerged. It is important that we evaluate our progress so that we can best respond to this ever-changing context.
Although our strategies and priorities lead to incremental change year after year, we expect our work to add up to long-term impact on and improvement of our health care system. If we are successful, we expect to see movement toward our long-term goal:
People who experience preventable health disparities due to historic and systemic injustices have access to timely, high-quality, and affordable health care services that meet their needs.
To that end, we are working to ensure:
- Personal and structural barriers to receiving quality health care services are eliminated
- Colorado’s health care payment system drives value, equity, and performance
- Patients experience seamless care, at an appropriate time and place
- People who experience preventable health disparities are covered by affordable and quality health insurance
