Colorado Hospital Transformation Program

Colorado's Hospital Transformation Program is a value-based care initiative relating supplemental payments from Medicaid to a hospital's performance against key indicators.

The State of Colorado Hospital Transformation Program (HTP) focuses on improving heath across communities through the development of the significant infrastructure, delivery system integration, and care interventions needed to allow the state’s hospitals to join alongside the ongoing improvements in care efforts underway throughout the state’s ambulatory health care system.

The HTP seeks to achieve five overarching goals:

  • Improve patients outcomes through care redesign and integration of care across settings
  • Improve the performance of the delivery system by ensuring appropriate care in appropriate settings.
  • Lower Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) costs though reductions in avoidable hospital utilization and increased effectiveness and efficiency in care delivery.
  • Accelerate hospitals’ organizational, operational, and systems readiness for value-based payment.
  • Increase collaboration between hospitals and other providers.

Additional information about the Hospital Transformation Program is available from the Colorado HTP website.
