ICC Welcomes CommuniCare Health Centers to ICare 2.0 HIE

Posted on 12 December, 2012

Austin, TX-

The Integrated Care Collaboration (ICC) is pleased to announce the participation of CommuniCare Health Centers in the ICC’s ICare 2.0, health information exchange (HIE).  CommuniCare Health Centers is a Federally Qualified Health Center offering full-service primary care for patients in both Bexar and Hays Counties.  Along with family medicine, CommuniCare Health Centers also offer women’s health services, pediatrics, senior care, podiatry, dental, behavioral health, and after hour care.  In addition to participating in the ICare 2.0 HIE, CommuniCare has continually been a valued member of the ICC’s Hays County Collaborative (HCC).  The HCC has been at the forefront of Hays County health issues and has operated as a collaborative to convene disparate healthcare providers from across the county.

CommuniCare facilities in both Kyle and San Marcos will have access to the ICare 2.0 Provider Portal as well as access to the wealth of analytic capabilities offered by the ICC.  Patients who seek care at these clinics will have the opportunity to participate in the HIE, thereby choosing to readily share their health information with their providers.  The purpose of the ICare 2.0 HIE is to improve the availability of clinical information at the point of care, and CommuniCare’s early adoption of HIE affirms their dedication to exceptional service and delivery of care to patients. By establishing this connection through the ICare 2.0 Provider Portal, CommuniCare is further empowering its providers to deliver exceptional and efficient care to patients in Hays and Bexar Counties.

The improved continuity of care that HIE enables will be an asset to providers and patients alike.  Providers, such as CCSA, Seton, and CTMC will benefit from more complete and coordinated clinical information about patients.  Patients will benefit from their providers having better information at the point of care.  All will benefit from the improved efficiency and potential cost lowering.
