With the right healthcare IT partner, practices can enjoy years of growth and success. Since 2006, eClinicalWorks has been exactly such a partner for New York City’s Urban Health Plan, helping the health center add locations, improve health screening rates and data collection, and win a 2009 HIMSS Davies Award for excellence.
Urban Health Plan was founded in 1974 by Dr. Richard Izquierdo, a lifelong resident of the South Bronx who expanded the San Juan Health Center to provide primary care and specialty medical services to a large and economically disadvantaged population in need. By 2005, UHP had grown to three health centers but needed a new healthcare IT partner to help them fulfill their potential.
In 2006, UHP switched to eClinicalWorks, gaining tools necessary to support quality healthcare, including the ability to track patients and outcomes, while expanding their network. By 2019, UHP was serving the Bronx and Queens with 11 health centers, 12 school-based clinics, and smaller centers in homeless shelters and assisted living facilities.
In 2009, Urban Health Plan was recognized with a HIMSS Davies Award for excellence in the implementation of healthcare IT. UHP has built upon the success each year.
