Four Clinics Join LANES Health Information Exchange to Improve Outcomes and Manage Health Risks
LANES welcomes four more community clinics to its growing participant base!
Medical practices connecting through the regional HIE to exchange patient data have access to its vast clinical data repository, enhancing primary care and closing care gaps for tens of thousands of L.A. County patients. LANES participants can instantly obtain the most current patient-encounter data to eliminate fragmentation in care such as physician notes, lab results, diagnostic imaging, procedures, prescriptions and more.
The four newest participants joining the LANES provider community are:
- The Achievable Health Center provides quality, coordinated and comprehensive care to patients of all ages. In 2013, Achievable became the first Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in California with services specifically tailored to serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
- APLA Health is a nonprofit FQHC serving more than 18,000 people annually. Its mission is to achieve healthcare equity and promote well-being for the LGBT and other underserved communities as well as people living with and affected by HIV. Providing 20 different services at 16 locations, APLA Health conducts community-based research on issues and is a leading advocate for policy and legislation that positively impacts the LGBT and HIV communities.
- Garfield Health Center is a FQHC providing multicultural and multilingual healthcare including medical, dental and mental health services to low-income, underserved patients and families in the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles County.
- The Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services has been improving the health of the Long Beach community for over a century. One of only three city-run health departments in California, Long Beach encourages better engagement with its people, neighborhoods, businesses and community partners, and a greater understanding of the city’s strengths and needs.
“The pandemic has shed light on the national need to invest in true interoperability that ensures the safe, effective and smooth transmission of patient data to the right healthcare provider at the right time to inform care decisions,” said Ali Modaressi, CEO of LANES. “Our newest LANES participants will immediately benefit from the HIE technology’s ability to fill in the missing clinical documentation of an incomplete medical record to view a complete picture of a patient’s longitudinal health history. We’re excited to welcome these dedicated community clinics to the LANES provider family.”
