The Louisiana Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) is a HRSA-funded initiative from 2019-2022 of 31 FQHCs across Louisiana focused on quality improvement in health care through the adoption of health information technology. The focus of the network is to support health centers in leveraging health information technology by increasing their participation in value-based care, and the Louisiana HCCH will assist in those efforts.
The Louisiana HCCN is administered by the Louisiana Primary Care Association. The LPCA was awarded a HRSA grant in late 2012 and started with 18 FQHCs across Louisiana and a focus on diabetes and cardiovascular disease and has grown to a strong network of 31 participating health centers with a focus on leveraging health IT to improve access to care, enhancing the quality of care, and achieving cost efficiencies through the redesign of practices to integrate services and optimize patient outcomes.
This project will focus technical assistance on helping Participating Health Centers (PHCs) meet core objectives in four areas: enhancing the patient and provider experience, advancing interoperability, and increasing the use of data to enhance value.
OSIS is a non-profit technology services organization dedicated to providing expert NextGen Healthcare technology assistance exclusively to Community Health Centers around the country.
The Keys to Quality (K2Q) HCCN consists of 12 participating health centers serving a large, diverse, low-income population. In many ways, this diverse network of PHC members is reflective of the HRSA Bureau of Primary Care Health Center Program as a whole. PHCs hail from several states, make use of multiple EHR platforms, and serve primarily low-income populations, often including special populations. Unique aspects of PHC membership include co-applicant status, academic health centers, and nurse-led health centers. The K2Q HCCN is administered by the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium. The mission of the K2Q HCCN is to strengthen the health IT and quality improvement capacity of participating health centers through individualized and peer technical assistance and internal capacity building.
