Health clinics play key role in Indiana quality, Beacon programs

Government Health IT, June 22, 2011

Health centers in Indiana that offer care for medically underserved individuals participate in the Indiana Health Information Exchange and have a large role in its quality initiative and Beacon Community Program. The Indiana Health Information Exchange is a non-profit corporation formed by the Regenstrief Institute, private hospitals, local and state health departments and other Indiana organizations to enable healthcare providers to share patient data. Seven separate community health centers and federally qualified health centers in central Indiana, including Open Door Health Services, Boone County Community Clinic and HealthNet, and one in the northwest section of the state, Northshore Health Center, take part.
