Physicians are the core of Colorado Health Neighborhoods. Our goal is to collaborate and join forces to build a sustainable health care system. Traditionally, health care has been reactive and focused more on health crisis and the physician and the hospital rather than on the consumer. Through the health neighborhood approach, we are moving past the bricks and mortar model of health care delivered within the walls of our hospitals which is associated with sick care, and shifting the entire paradigm of traditional health care delivery to focus more on keeping populations healthy. Together, we’re working to raise the bar on quality to improve care for the communities we serve. Health neighborhoods enable us to enhance our focus on overall health and move us from providing just “sick care” to providing “wellness care.”
Physicians are leading our efforts to create a health care model for the future through several key areas:
- Reduced overall health care costs and improved outcomes in defined populations. This will be accomplished through our focus on wellness and education to empower individuals to participate more actively in their own health care.
- Enhanced communication and care coordination across the system will result in less duplication and better planning, saving time and money while improving outcomes.
- Efficiencies, improved quality, access and service will result in increased reimbursement for participating physicians.
- Colorado Health Neighborhoods are governed by a board committed to physician leadership.
