Three of Colorado's clinical health data organizations have partnered with Colorado SIM to enable aggregation, consolidation, and sharing of clinical quality measure (CQM) data across the state of Colorado. The funding and oversight for the project is being provided by SIM, a federally funded, Governor's Office initiative, that is helping hundreds of primary care practices and four community mental health centers integrate behavioral and physical health and learn how to succeed with alternative payment models.

This partnership is the first collaboration of its kind to leverage blockchain for HIPAA-compliant data aggregation and reporting in the state of Colorado. The blockchain based solution allows the HIE partners to each maintain direct control over their respective data assets while enabling the consolidation and contextualization needed to report electronic CQMs for SIM. The solution operates as a test case for Colorado's APM model which is currently being planned.
