As we work with hundreds of health centers across the US, we witness the dedication exhibited by clinicians and staff to provide superior quality care and touch more lives in need of health services. We are humbled by their actions and applaud them.
Santa Rosa, Calif. (PRWEB) August 12, 2015
In celebration of 2015 National Health Center Week (NHCW), i2i Systems is providing a simple-yet-powerful toolkit to all health centers wanting to maximize their population health management outcomes. This week’s campaign (August 9-15) raises awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers. The national celebration comes on the heels of new data that shows health centers now serve over 24 million people (or one in 14 Americans) as the largest and most successful system of primary healthcare.
One of the bright spots in America’s healthcare system, health centers started 50 years ago as a pilot project during President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. Today, they have compiled a significant record of success that includes:
- Producing $24 billion in annual health system savings
- Decreasing unnecessary hospitalizations and unnecessary visits to the emergency room
- Maintaining patient satisfaction levels of nearly 100 percent
- Reducing income and ethnic health disparities nationwide, even in the poorest and most challenged communities
“For the last 15 years, i2i Systems has helped empower health centers to achieve tremendous benchmarks of success. i2i Systems works diligently to deliver results to all of our health center customers. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), with Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Pre-validation Program completion for i2iTracks, allows health centers across the country to accomplish the Triple Aim of maximizing quality patient care, increasing their patient population’s health as a whole, and reducing healthcare costs.” Stated Janice Nicholson, i2i Systems, Founder and CEO. “Day in and day out—as we work with hundreds of health centers across the US—we witness the dedication and passion exhibited by clinicians and staff to provide superior quality care and touch more lives in need of health services. We are humbled by their actions and applaud the thousands who serve during NHCW.”
Health centers are increasingly becoming the trusted provider of choice for many families – and over 300,000 veterans. Over 60 percent of health centers are recognized as patient-centered medical homes (PCMH), something that i2i Systems strongly supports through its advanced and detailed i2iTracks software prevalidation—which provides health centers auto credits across a multitude of NCQA PCMH factors.
