The Colorado Regional Health Information Organization has chosen a technology platform, the next step in connecting the state’s health information exchange.

The platform is developed by Medicity in Salt Lake City.

The platform will be used for a statewide health information exchange that will allow providers to share information.

“Most people we talk to in communities think their health information is already shared electronically and securely between their health care providers,” said Phyllis Albritton, CORHIO executive director. “In most cases, that’s not true. For example, it can take up to five days to send lab results to a doctor’s office because of the paper-based processes currently used in health care.”

The system will be introduced in Colorado Springs this summer.
