Picture this: About two dozen Colorado legislators gather for three days before the 2013 session begins. Half are Republicans, half are Democrats. Some are veteran lawmakers, others are newly elected. Some are well versed in health care issues while others are determined to learn all they can.

Each member of our team worked on the Hot Issues in Health Care conference. With all hands on deck, we offered 15 presentations, wrote companion publications for each topic and brought in national experts to spark important discussions. We created a boot camp for legislative basics and helped lawmakers understand how to collaborate across political divides. Not to mention some serious networking involving marshmallows and an outside fire pit. I mention the “Hot Issues” conference, just one of many highlights from 2012, because it illustrates what makes the

Colorado Health Institute so valuable. We are experts in health care policy. We bring analytical strength to the table, helping to cut through the noise and focus on what the evidence shows. And we know how to communicate, making complicated topics accessible and understandable. All of this helps us to carry out our vision – improving the health of all Coloradans by supporting health policy discussions with evidencebased analysis. We celebrated our tenth anniversary in 2012, and now we’ve turned our attention to the future.

We’ll monitor progress on implementing health reform. We’ll update efforts to integrate our health system – physical, behavioral, oral and public health all included. We’ll broaden our focus beyond access and treatment to include prevention, wellness and community health. And we’ll continue to serve policymakers with evidence-based analysis and data. That’s CHI. In a snapshot.
