Whole Health LLC

Using the emergency room as a primary care provider is the most expensive way to receive treatment. Repeated, inappropriate emergency room visits are disruptive to patients, providers, and community members.
In partnership with Rocky Mountain Health Plans, Whole Health came into existence in 2015 to change those behaviors, improve health and save money for all.  Whole Health’s Community Health Workers use behavioral health techniques to positively impact a person’s physical health and reduce unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations. Patient-centric, Community Health Workers connect with them wherever they are and then either help navigate or provide correct services, education, informal mentoring and social support.  They also act as a vital link between patients and providers to ensure thriving relationships. Learn more about Whole Health, LLC and how it supports your local community.

Health Information Exchange

Seamless communication and access to patient information among providers is an imperative step to receiving  integrated care. That’s why we worked with Quality Health Networkto establish the first-ever-in-Colorado whole Health Information Exchange program.
HIPAA requirements are different for physical health care and behavioral health care and in the past sharing information between physical health care doctors and mental health care doctors was difficult. Together with QHN we developed a HIPAA-compliant program to increase communication and eliminates waste, resulting in greater collaboration among health care providers and ensuring clients receive the very best care. Learn more about how the Health Information Exchange program is transforming care in our local communities.

Integrated Care

We believe true wellness means both a healthy body and a healthy mind and we understand convenience is important in health care.  That’s why we partner with hospitals, schools, social service programs, nursing homes and other organizations to make it easy and convenient to access treatment.  Learn more about our Integrated Care Approach and how we’re shaping mental health care in our local communities.
