Colorado is a national leader in healthcare innovation. The state is among the nation’s leading awardees of funding support to transform clinical practice and achieve the Quadruple Aim – improving quality of care, reducing per-capita cost of care, improving patient and family experience of care, and improving provider experience of delivering care.
Currently, HealthTeamWorks is participating in several statewide practice transformation and healthcare innovation initiatives as a Practice Transformation Organization (PTO). These include Better Care, Better Costs, Better Colorado (BC3) and EvidenceNOW SW (ENSW).
More about BC3
HealthTeamWorks invites your practice to participate in the second year of the BC3 Program. As a participating practice, you will be part of a Community Learning Track, an innovative delivery model that provides practice transformation support to practices through virtual coaching support, peer learning networks, action groups, workforce development training, and learning collaboratives. HealthTeamWorks will be partnering with Anita Rich of CCHAP to co-facilitate a Pediatric Community Learning Track. This is an opportunity for pediatric practices across the state to learn from each other on pediatric-focused topics.
Complete a Practice Information Application here. Direct questions to Heather Walker ([email protected]). All forms must be received by 5:00 pm on March 25, 2016 to be considered for the program. Practices will be notified if they have been selected to participate in the BC3 Program by April 1, 2016.

ENSW is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) aimed at transforming health care delivery by building critical infrastructure to help smaller primary care practices new to practice transformation apply the latest medical research and tools to improve patient heart health. Each participating practice will receive nine months of Practice Facilitator support, and ENSW aims to improve outcomes associated with the ABCs of cardiovascular disease:
- Aspirin use by high-risk individuals
