Community Health Centers Improve Access; Deliver High-Quality Care with Technology
TAMPA, Fla., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Choice Network (HCN), a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)-sponsored health center controlled network (HCCN) and a national model of a successful collaboration among 54 community health centers (CHC) is implementing Sage Intergy CHC and Sage Intergy EHR for member community health centers (CHCs) across the nation.
The first implementations were made at West Hawaii Community Health Center in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, Flint Hills Community Health Center in Emporia, Kansas and Wayne Community Health Center in Bicknell, Utah. These community health centers use Sage Intergy CHC for all practice management needs, including familiar tasks such as appointment setting and billing. The system also meets the specialty needs of a community health center, such as sliding-fee schedules based on Federal poverty guidelines, automatic insurance plan assignment, UDS reporting to HRSA, and much more.

The implementation schedule continues, with more than 26 community health centers within Health Choice Network expected to implement over the course of the next two years.
