Focusing on bringing effective practice innovation opportunities to all of Colorado’s healthcare practices.
A 9-month program, with 6 months of practice facilitation, for primary care practices to address unhealthy alcohol use.

A pilot program working to integrate OB/GYN and substance use disorder treatment for women and babies.
We recognize that practices may be overwhelmed with COVID-19, and our projects may not be a priority. We trust you to use your best judgment on balancing the needs of the practice. Practices may choose not to meet with the PTO and focus their energy on preparedness efforts, or they may choose to meet with the PTO for our projects and use coaching to help them prepare.
We sustain and grow collaboration through convening the Colorado Health Extension System (CHES) -- a cooperative of practice transformation organizations, regional health connectors, State agencies, and other partners interested in health and healthcare in Colorado.
The Colorado Health Extension System creates a statewide infrastructure to support and coordinate practice transformation and to connect primary care to local organizations to achieve community health improvement goals.
