Redwood Community Health Coalition (RCHC)’s 4-Point Evidence-Based Care (EBC) program framework includes four areas where RCHC and member health centers collaborate to improve population health outcomes. The EBC program framework advances practice transformation through collective leadership and the implementation of evidence-based care. The EBC programs seeks to improve care and outcomes through shared clinical guidelines, greater standardization of the electronic health record and use of clinical decision support tools, sharing of best practices, and population health and quality improvement support.
RCHC’s 4-Point Evidence Based Care Programs:
- Shared Clinical Guidelines and Protocols – Agreed to by RCHC Medical Directors for each member health center.
- Clinical Decision Support and Analytics – Recalls, Alerts, Order Sets, Templates, Standard Reports.
- Shared Best Practices – Peer Network meetings and RCHC documented Promising Practices.
- Population Health and QI Support – Provider/Staff Education and Technical Assistance
