The Future of Quality Through an Equity Lens

Timeslot: Thursday, October 12, 2023 - 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM
Session Type: Concurrent Session


The mission of the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (HCPF) is to “improve health care equity, access and outcomes for the people we serve while saving Coloradans money on health care and driving value for Colorado”. HCPF is Colorado’s single state agency for administration of the Medicaid program, serving 1.7 million members. In order to effectively meet the growing demands of high quality access to health care, our department has accelerated efforts, aligning the measurement of quality performance, with an equity lens. This approach has created bountiful opportunities to be innovative to close disparity gaps. This workshop will highlight and identify key efforts in reducing disparities and identifying inadequate access to services and supports in the Colorado Medicaid population.
