C-Stat is a performance management system that allows every Colorado Department of Human Services program to better focus on and improve performance outcomes. By identifying areas of focus, CDHS can determine what is working and what needs improvement. By measuring the impact of day-to-day efforts, we make more informed, collaborative decisions to align efforts and resources to affect positive change.
Each Division within the Office of Behavioral Health, Children, Youth, & Families, Economic Security, and Long Term Care is collecting data to be examined on a monthly basis in C-Stat meetings. Together, Executive Leadership along with the Office staff analyze data to identify both positive trends, and opportunities for improvement. Divisions will determine strategies for improvement and implement these strategies, while Executive Leadership will help to reduce barriers to the Divisions’ success.
C-Stat has moved CDHS to an outcomes oriented and collaborative approach to affect change at every level. The goal of C-Stat is to collect timely data, increase transparency, conduct regular executive meetings to assess the effectiveness of the strategies, and identify new performance measures, all in support of continuous quality improvement.
