BEAVERTON, Ore., July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medicaid providers pursuing healthcare quality improvement initiatives face complex challenges when addressing the needs of high-risk patient populations. Their patients frequently access health services outside of the clinic, moving in and out of state-funded care settings, making it difficult to identify and close priority gaps in care.
In order to achieve the best possible health outcomes for their populations and meet government reporting requirements, an increasing number of Medicaid providers are turning to Enli Health Intelligence. In fact, greater than 15 percent of Enli's provider customers are federally qualified health centers serving Medicaid populations from coast to coast.
Enli will host a live roundtable discussion on August 11 featuring several progressive FQHCs currently using Enli technology:
- Alliance of Chicago, a network of community health centers, acquired distribution rights for the Enli platform on behalf of a subset of its member network, which in its entirety consists of more than 40 community health centers organized across 200-plus delivery sites in 18 states serving in excess of 1.5 million patients. The organization made its decision to invest based upon the success of a member clinic already using Enli's population health IT platform.
- Central City Concern, an FQHC in Portland, Oregon, utilizes Enli CareManager across its clinical network to help providers identify and close gaps at the point of care, including those of its diabetic patient population. "CareManager has transformed Central City Concern's workflows around diabetes management," stated Dr. Rachel Solotaroff, Chief Medical Director.
- Contra Costa Health Services serves the health of all people in Contra Costa county, with special attention to those most vulnerable. Their facilities support over 640,000 visits annually for medical care, behavioral health, and other concerns. Enli CareManager is a central pillar in Contra Costa's primary care redesign strategy.
- Fenway Health is a FQHC in Boston, Massachusetts that manages a patient population of more than 24,000 individuals with a staff of 500. Among other priorities, Fenway is using Enli software to help address the healthcare needs of the LGBT community.
Established as a benefit under Medicare in October of 1991, FQHCs are safety net providers that primarily provide primary care services in medically underserved urban and rural communities.
Organizations interested in learning more about the unique challenges faced by FQHCs, and how they are tapping technology solutions to close gaps in care, are invited to attend the roundtable. Click here to register.
