Social Health information Exchange (S-HIE) is recognized in Colorado as a prime opportunity to improve care coordination and reduce barriers that providers, individuals, community-based services, health care teams, funders, and insurers experience in delivering high-quality care with effective resource use. Colorado has several local and regional efforts underway to build S-HIE systems, with each effort targeting different needs, goals, and users. The focus of this feasibility study was on maternal health innovation and the specific use case of Plans of Safe Care for maternal-infant dyads affected by substance use during pregnancy.
This project was funded through the Maternal Health Innovation Grant awarded to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. This project intersects with a Plan of Safe Care pilot, resourced by the Colorado Department of Human Services Division of Child Welfare.
