With support from the HCCN award, OCHIN built a methodology to better support health centers across the performance continuum to deliver the highest quality of care to the greatest number of vulnerable patients. We identified a shared definition of performance and are using it to understand key attributes that drive success, so that we can spread learnings, and increase performance of the collaborative.
OCHIN is hard at work on our 10.2 release of custom EHR templates for our Planned Parenthood customers. This release will be made available for affiliates using our custom EHR templates by the end of November. We will be conducting our first demonstration of our work in progress for Planned Parenthood affiliates on Friday, September 14.
New statistics released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show a persistent trend of rising autism rates in children. To learn more about the economic impact of this disorder on affected families, OCHIN is collaborating with Kaiser Permanente on a research study assessing financial, time, and employment costs of bringing up a child with autism.
