What We Do
RCHC convenes peer groups for Medical Directors, Operations Leads, Electronic Health Records users, Quality Improvement and Data Leads to support the needs of our participating health centers and to offer a platform to share best practices and work on resolutions to issues and to provide aggregated data dashboards for the health centers.
RCHC works with the health centers to collaborate and help facilitate new services and contracts for Health Information Technology, Analytics Platforms, and Health Information Exchange.
RCHC provides technical assistance and trainings on relevant initiatives, i.e. use of analytics reports, roll out of Evidence Based Care tools (guidelines, protocols and clinical decision support tools), and topic specific sessions including areas within Patient Centered Medical Home, Coding, Health Information Technology and Health Coaching.
RCHC hosted a Symposium on the Future of Complex Care which incorporated PCMH, Meaningful Use, Health Information Technology and Coding for Complex Care in November 2017. Materials and shared promising practices from this event can be found on the Complex Care page of our website.
