What We DoQuality Health Network (QHN) is a nonprofit dedicated to healthcare quality improvement. QHN was created to improve the health of people who live across western Colorado. We provide for the secure exchange of electronic health information making your information available to authorized caregivers—when and where it’s needed—so they can provide you the best possible care.
Learn More About QHN's ServicesQHN provides physicians and other medical providers with the advanced information exchange technology and the support they need for efficient, effective delivery of high-quality care. By providing a single online resource for exchanging health information securely with multiple colleagues and organizations QHN is able to give your medical team access to accurate, real-time information regarding your health.
This exchange of information is accomplished through the secure electronic movement of health-related information utilizing nationally recognized standards and policies, called health information exchange (HIE). HIE is key to ensure high quality, more efficient and cost effective patient care. As patients move from one healthcare setting to another, HIE makes sure their appropriate health information is available at the point of care when and where it’s needed.
QHN's commitment is to improving the health of those that live in western Colorado through HIE and by promoting the adoption the utilization of healthcare information technology (HIT) to support population health management, risk stratification and to support our stakeholders as they transition to new payment models.
