CVS Caremark and IBM Announce the "Technology Solutions for Smarter Health" Program in Partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers
Date:7/15/2014

lth center sites throughout the country are providing care for more than 22 million Americans. As local, community-based health care systems in rural and urban neighborhoods, health centers are able to provide direct health services that are both affordable and accessible.

"We're proud to support this important initiative," said Kyu Rhee, MD, MPP, Vice President and Chief Health Officer, IBM Corporation.  "For over 40 years, health centers have been such an important and essential part of the US health care system, especially for those who are poor and underserved.  Through this grant program, our goal is to enhance the community health centers' technology infrastructure and capabilities.  We know that these IT investments will bring key data, analytics, and insights for improving the health of the populations that community health centers serve."

The new "Technology Solutions for Smarter Health" program, in partnership with IBM, is in addition to the multi-million dollar, multi-year partnership between NACHC and CVS Caremark's foundation, The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, which has awarded nearly 60 community health centers with "Innovations in Community Health" grants over the past two years to support the development of innovative, community-based programs and initiatives that focus on the treatment and management of chronic illnesses, specifically heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and asthma. The "Innovations in Community Health" grant program is helping to increase access to quality health care and produce better health outcomes while reducing costs for patients and health care systems.

"We are committed to supporting the identification and implementation of technology solutions to help our patients achieve and manage their best health," said Malvise A. Scott, Senior Vice President, Partnership and Resource Development of the National Association of Community Health Centers. "Throug
