Qsource, a nonprofit healthcare quality improvement and information technology consultancy, has awarded $20,000 to Church Health through its grant-funding program, Qsource Community Partnerships, established to support programs that pursue improvement in health outcomes.
With this funding Church Health plans to purchase a tool that will allow it to more accurately manage the health of its uninsured patient population. The tool will identify needed gaps in care, alert providers to care gaps, generate patient lists specific to the type of care needed, and allow Church Health to deploy more effective outreach and communications.
Many Church Health patients are transient, making the use of multiple communication tools (email, text message and telephone) necessary. By contacting patients when screenings, vaccinations and regular medical checkups are needed, the not-for-profit clinic will better deliver patient resources.
Headquartered in Tennessee since 1973, Qsource provides programs and services to states, organizations, patients, and providers that will improve community health, healthcare quality and delivery, and achieve improved patient outcomes and costs savings.
