Seven counties covering 17,500 square miles comprise the geographic reach of the Colorado Beacon Consortium--a cooperative federal agreement, supported by local partners, designed to build and expand the health care infrastructure.
The region's 320, 000 residents are a reflection of this remote spot that lies roughly halfway between Denver and Salt Lake City. Rugged self-reliance in the people is paired with a sense of community connectedness and collaboration. Colorado Beacon sprang from the region's history of resourcefulness to solve problems. The key problem: health care is disconnected and has failed to use technology to transform care delivery.
