Connecting for a Healthier Community - Complete


ConnectingThis project brings together four HCHA-member community health centers and connects them with major health systems in Houston through health information exchange technology. The initiative will also improve operating efficiencies through clinical and administrative benchmarking, best practices and quality improvements. Shared data will give safety net providers increased access to patient histories and change referral patterns (electronic vs. phone referrals). The project will allow participating health centers to: (1) collaborate to identify improvements; (2) enhance capacity and physician productivity through use of a shared MBA fellow; and (3) ensure sustainability through access to a community-wide patient health portal for sharing data.
