Caring for Colorado is working to build the capacity of Colorado’s health care system with the goal of improving access to care for underserved populations and people living in rural areas of the state. We are working to:
- Sustain and strengthen health care delivery systems.
- Develop new health care services to address gaps.
- Expand the availability of health services.
- Support the use of tele-health as a means of increasing access to care.
- Assure a diverse and adequately distributed health care workforce.
