Health Center Controlled Network
The TACHC HCCN purpose is to lead collaborative information technology services for CHCs' quality and payment initiatives. TACHC will promote the use of information technology to support quality reporting and improvement across the CHC networks. Fundamental to this effort is the concept of interoperability, which requires information systems to efficiently communicate thereby allowing use of shared technology to achieve stated goals.
Specific quality reporting features will support:
- Clinic-based rapid cycle improvement efforts (e.g., Institute for Healthcare Improvement – Plan, Do, Study, Act);
- HRSA-sponsored reporting for health disparities collaborative work;
- Information needs for CHC advocacy and value-based reimbursements; and,
- UDS reporting.
Momentum builds as more clinics engage in EHR implementations and seek the greatest value from technology investments to improve practice workflow and patient care.
