Peer Networks

Colorado Clinical Advisory Network (CCAN) is a section of Medical Directors whose mission is to advise the CCHN Board of Directors on issues of clinical relevance and provide a forum for mutual support and information sharing. Benefits of CCAN participation include networking and peer learning opportunities for Community Health Center (CHC) Medical Directors, participation in quality improvement initiatives, the opportunity to work closely with partners to advocate for regulations that assist CHC providers in providing quality care, and data analysis activities to inform high quality care at CHCs.

Colorado Dental Health Network (CDHN) is comprised of CHC dental directors or their designated dental staff representatives. CDHN’s primary purpose is to improve the oral health of the patients served in community, migrant, and homeless CHCs by assuring reasonable access and quality of care. Benefits of CDHN participation include opportunities to network and enhance relationships of mutual support and information sharing through participation in round table discussions related to clinic issues.

Behavioral Health Group functions as a forum for behavioral health leadership at CHCs to engage in behavioral health integration and improve behavioral health services through collaboration and sharing promising care models. The group provides updates to the Board of Directors to inform CCAN and the Board of Directors on the status of behavioral health integration in Colorado CHCs and to identify strategic priorities.
