Colorado's Family Physicians Weigh in on Care Coordination
Miranda Meadow, Health Care Programs Manager

With that in mind, Healthy Transitions Colorado, a collaborative supported by CIVHC, is interested in understanding issues related to care coordination for family practice docs in Colorado.

Seventy-three percent of Colorado is considered rural and the average rural county sprawls over 1600 square miles. Critical Access Hospitals and Rural Health Clinics serve the nearly 700,000 residents who make their homes in the far reaches of the state. The Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC), Colorado's non-profit State Office of Rural Health, works with these facilities to ensure that all rural Coloradans have access to comprehensive, affordable, high quality health care.
