Mission & Vision

Think About It Colorado is a nonprofit public awareness program designed to spark a statewide conversation about health care safety and to drive reform in this critical area.

We’re a coalition of dedicated and knowledgeable leaders from the patient advocacy, health care and business communities.  We’re asking Coloradans to “Team up for safer health care” because that’s the first step towards making it a reality.

Our Mission

To promote statewide awareness of needs and opportunities for safer health care by engaging consumers and providers in advancing a culture of patient safety.

Our Vision

Think About it Colorado will raise awareness about the ongoing initiatives, needs and opportunities to improve patient safety and create the will to make it happen.

Our Statement of Values

Think About It Colorado is working towards an improved system that:

  • Provides information to patients and their families to become active participants in their own health care.

  • Improves safety by ensuring that health professionals and health care facilities learn from problems that occur in the course of health care.

  • Holds health professionals and health care facilities accountable for the quality of the care they provide.

  • Assists injured patients and their families compassionately and fairly.

Our campaign is funded in part by COPIC, a leading partner, advocate and catalyst for better medicine, working collaboratively with key stakeholders and the broader health care community to enhance medicine, enhance lives, and enhance communities, and through other generous sponsors and grantors. We invite other organizations that share our mission to help us in our work by supporting us through sponsorship.
