TACHC manages a Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) to allow safety net providers to exchange information from databases of clinical information from health records.
A Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) is a group of safety net providers collaborating to exchange information and establish mechanisms to improve access to care, enhance quality of care and achieve cost efficiencies. TACHC has engineered an HCCN that can extract clinical data from health center records and store it in a centralized data repository. This allows us to consolidate data from a variety of clinical sources to see larger patterns. Through the HCCN, care teams at the health centers can retrieve data for a single patient or access reports on a population of patients with common characteristics.
Important HCCN facts:
- The HCCN is a reporting tool that will expand in the future as needs arise
- HCCN participation benefits health centers and contributes to state-wide clinical quality improvement
- The HCCN gives you more options for leveraging your data for your center's benefit
- Connecting to the HCCN is relatively simple and hassle-free for centers
