eConsult Platform

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) is implementing a statewide Medicaid electronic consultation platform. This platform will promote HCPF's mission to improve healthcare equity, access and outcomes for the people we serve.

The eConsult platform will allow Primary Care Providers (PCPs) to communicate electronically with specialty providers. This allows PCPs and specialty providers to work together to decide the best treatment for Health First Colorado members in a way that is convenient for members.

HCPF expects the eConsult Platform to go live February 1, 2024.

Providers will access the online platform with URL: ColoradoMedicaideConsult.com.

eConsult Platform Overview

What is the eConsult Platform?
The eConsult platform is a web-based and application-based electronic system that allows for an asynchronous (store and forward) exchange between Primary Care Providers (PCPs) and specialty providers to share health information and to discuss patient care in a secure environment.

Electronic consultations between PCPs and specialty providers, or eConsults, are a way to coordinate referrals, when appropriate. In these instances, referrals will be made to specialty providers who are proven to improve quality outcomes, add value, and reduce costs specific to the specialty care required.

  • Summer/Fall 2023 - Implementation Activities
  • February 1, 2024 - Anticipated Go Live
