Health Center Partners gains HHS funding for improvements
These funds are a portion of the $87 million that has been granted to a total of 1,310 health centers located throughout the U.S. The money will be used to buy advanced software as well as tools to aggregate and analyze data for the new value-based care model.
"Health Center Partners' members are at the forefront of care delivery, serving nearly 800,000 patients across southern California," Henry Tuttle, CEO of Health Center Partners, said. "We recognize the importance of continually evaluating our information technology systems to ensure they are capturing accurate, timely data and reporting that data in a way that supports critical decision-making for care delivery, reimbursement and operational efficiency. We congratulate our members for once again bringing significant funding to the region."
With these funds, the facility will be able to improve the care it offers patients at 13 different center locations.
"Quality of care is our number-one priority, and we recognize that effective health information technology is critical to ensuring our patients receive appropriate and timely services," Constance Kirk, Imperial Beach Community Clinic executive director, said. "This HHS funding will allow our centers in Imperial Beach and Nestor to implement advanced electronic health records and other integrated systems to make more informed decisions about patient care delivery and better support our growing patient base."
