Changing care delivery and payment in Colorado communities

In partnership with the Colorado Health Foundation, HealthTeamWorks provided practice transformation services to Colorado-based practices to achieve BC3’s strategic objective of enabling healthcare providers to deliver evidence-based, coordinated care supported by payment systems that reward positive outcomes.
