Idaho Health Center Quality Collaborative
The Idaho Health Center Quality Collaborative (IHCQC) is a Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) comprised of 15 health centers with over 89 sites. Health center services include behavioral health, dental, pharmacy, substance use treatment, optometry and many other supporting services. Our mission is to provide services that enable our member health centers to provide their patients with the highest quality, effective and efficient heath care and improve the overall health of their communities.
The Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN), funded by HRSA, supports health centers in adopting technology-enabled quality improvement strategies and engaging in health information exchange (HIE) to strengthen the quality of care and improve patient health outcomes.
HCCNs are groups of health centers collaborating to improve operational and clinical practices by making technology easier for providers and patients to use, increasing the security of patient information and using data to improve patient care. Their primary goals include:
- Enhancing the patient and provider experience
- Advancing interoperability
- Using data to enhance Health Center value and quality of care
