IPHCA will receive up to nearly $1.9 million in federal funding over the next three years to support eighteen of Indiana‚Äôs Community Health Centers in their efforts to improve the care they provide to their patients.  This funding will be used to establish the Indiana Quality Improvement Network (IQIN).

The IQIN is supported by Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to increase health information technology support and enhance quality improvement efforts across the participating health centers. The eighteen IQIN Community Health Centers operate 117 primary care sites across Indiana, serving 360,000 patients and providing over 1.2 million visits annually.  These health centers will work together to improve access to care, enhance quality of care and achieve cost efficiencies through the redesign of practices to integrate services, optimize patient outcomes, or negotiate managed care contacts on behalf of participating members.

Within the HCCN, individual health centers work together to share resources, leverage buying power (e.g. discounted software), enhance access to information and promote guidelines on best practices, as well as provide support for achieving quality of care and operational goals.  Networks support member health centers in their shared mission to provide comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services to medically underserved communities and vulnerable populations.
