KAYSVILLE, Utah, March 13, 2013 – Qvera has partnered with Alliance of Chicago to improve patient care for the underserved through interoperability in a program called HealtheRx. The Qvera Interface Engine (QIE) is being leveraged for real-time integration of patient clinical data and community resource information at the point-of-care. Alliance of Chicago along with University of Chicago, have made a grass roots effort in South Side Chicago. HealtheRx allows patients to better manage their healthcare after they leave their physician’s office, thus lowering the cost of overall care.
About Alliance of Chicago
While an important characteristic of Community Health Centers is their strong individual community identification and governance, they are subject to the same forces that have driven the development of large health care systems. Recognizing the opportunities for groups of safety net organizations who could choose to cooperate rather than compete, the Bureau of Primary Health Care established the Integrated Service Networks Initiative (ISDI) in 1994. The Alliance was founded to realize this strategy.
The mission of the Alliance is to share resources and integrate services in order to more efficiently and effectively deliver accessible quality health care to the communities we serve.
The Alliance’s strategic vision is to continue promoting the thoughtful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the Safety Net to promote access, improve quality, and efficiency. For more information, visit www.alliancechicago.org.
