Health Center in New Mexico to implement eClinicalWorks EHR for medical, dental and behavioral health
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.—September 19, 2018—eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, announces that La Clinica de Familia (LCDF), a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Doña Ana County, New Mexico, will transition to the eClinicalWorks cloud-centric EHR solution for its 155 providers across 19 locations, including five school-based clinics. Use of the cloud-based technology will support care coordination between providers, staff and patients to enhance communication and improve the delivery of care.
“LCDF seeks to systematically connect its primary care, dental care, behavioral health, and ancillary services to better meet all of the patients’ health needs,” said Virgil Medina, CEO of La Clinica de Familia. “eClinicalWorks provides the means to make that happen. No matter where the patient presents in our system, the personal health record is accessible for the providers and staff. We selected eClinicalWorks because of its proven success with community health centers and its commitment to providing evidence-based care to medically underserved populations. We look forward to working with eClinicalWorks to advance quality outcomes for the 34,000 patients that we serve annually, including 4,500 behavioral health patients.”
eClinicalWorks V11, with a new core, will provide LCDF with innovative tools to streamline and improve overall efficiency and communications and encourage preventive care for its patients. V11 will create cycles of care that help the organization better understand patient needs, accurately gauge risk, and promote more effective treatment and better outcomes.
The eClinicalWorks cloud-centric EHR includes an Electronic Medical Record, Electronic Dental Record, and behavioral health services record — providing a fully integrated technology platform with each patient’s records. The solution will improve LCDF’s operational efficiencies and provide high-quality, evidence-based care for its patient populations, regardless of the setting.
“eClinicalWorks is dedicated to assisting traditionally underserved communities,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “La Clinica de Familia will join the more than 800 health centers nationwide already utilizing eClinicalWorks technologies to deliver affordable, evidence-based care to effectively treat patients across settings.”
