QHN has successfully served rural suppliers in the west Colorado, covering 100% of hospitals and more than 90% of providers in the region. CCMCN supports Federal Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), Rural Health Clinics (RHCs), Critical Access Hospitals, Regional Accountable Entities and Health Alliances through Colorado with data, care coordination and analytics solutions.

As part of the exploration of integration, Marc Lassauxcurrently Chief Technology Officer of QHN, will serve as Acting General Manager of QHN effective in April 2following the retirement of Dick Thompson.

“QHN is successful because we have focused on our mission and values, and that will continue to drive us through this exciting process,” said Lassaux. “I am grateful to Dick for his leadership to QHN and throughout our state and for the foundation he provided. This foundation is essential in helping us look to the future working with a great organization like CCMCN.”
