As the Colorado HealthStory Project Nears Its End, the Team Releases a Statewide Profile Revealing the Top 10 Themes Heard Around the State

Colorado HealthStory, a project of the Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC), the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved (CCMU) and ClinicNET, is a public will-building project funded by The Colorado Trust and the Colorado Health Foundation. Over the last three years, the team traveled over 3,000 miles to 27 counties in all corners of the state. As we listened to Coloradans tell their health story, we heard ten recurring themes rise to the top, ten things we believe define and describe healthcare in Colorado:

1. Healthcare coverage and access

2. Navigating the healthcare system

3. Educational and Preventive Health Measures

4. Health and Wellness

5. Complex health conditions

6. Behavioral Health

7. Oral Health

8. Patient provider relationships

9. Being an engaged patient

10. Health Disparities

This top ten list is a reflection of Colorado’s own health stories, and we’re proud to be able to help tell it. We encourage you to explore and share the Colorado HealthStory Top Ten with your partners, providers and patients.
