Five leading healthcare philanthropies have embarked on a two-year, $4.5 million effort to help community clinics and health centers that serve California’s uninsured and low-income residents adopt technology to improve chronic disease care using disease registries.

In the first round of funding, 33 community clinics and health centers across California will receive up to $40,000 each in funds to support software acquisition and training, with many of the clinics collaborating on implementation.

The funding organizations for the “Tools for Quality” program are Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF); the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF); the Community Clinics Initiative/Tides (CCI); Kaiser Permanente Southern California Region; and The California Endowment (TCE).

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
