We work with communities to create lasting change.
Community-driven solutions should be at the forefront of efforts to transform the systems that deliver health to Coloradans. We partner with and bring together community organizations, health systems leaders, and others, to support local initiatives that drive innovation and improve health and health care. Then, through partnership and collaboration, we are able to accelerate change in Colorado’s communities and work towards health equity.
Community-Driven Health Systems Change
We partner with and bring together community organizations, health systems leaders, and others to facilitate community-led initiatives that drive innovation and improve local health systems. This includes offering our technical expertise in coalition building, facilitation, community change, and collaboration. We work in a supportive, behind the scenes way in partnership with communities working to improve health and achieve health equity. We focus on:
- Increasing the capacity and effectiveness of local health alliances across Colorado
- Increasing collaboration and shared learning between and across communities
- Increasing the visibility of local health care work across the state
- Elevating the collective voice of community efforts to improve health
Colorado Network of Health Alliances
As part of our commitment to supporting community-led health efforts, we convene the Colorado Network of Health Alliances, a robust statewide community of local health leaders. This peer-learning group of community-based alliances and coalitions collectively represents several hundred organizations and a large majority of Colorado’s population. These alliances work to develop health care leadership, increase access to health care, and strengthen the health care system for their communities.
