Access to Care

Putting Health Care in Reach for All
Published: May 13, 2021 | Updated: April 20, 2022

Accessing health care when we need it is a key to physical and behavioral health.

Through the Colorado Health Access Survey and other tools, CHI is able to explore the nuances of access to specialty, preventive, primary, oral, and behavioral health care across the state. Our team identifies who is and isn’t able to access care and works with partners to identify and address gaps in the state-level, system-level, and community-level policies that can affect access.

What We Can Do

  • Policy analysis
  • Needs assessments
  • Strategic planning
  • Program evaluation
