The Redwood Community Health Coalition (RCHC), a network of non-profit community health centers in California, has purchased licenses of Westborough, Mass.-based eClinicalWorks unified EMR and practice management solution, along with the vendor’s Patient Portal and Electronic Health eXchange (eEHX), for 10 community health centers operating 18 sites.

According to eClinicalWorks, the Patient Portal will provide RCHC with a secure means for doctors and patients to communicate, make appointments online, view lab results and enter health statements. eEHX provides a complete view of a patient record by allowing various practices, beginning with the participating health centers, to view and update the electronic chart, the vendor states.
