Clinic Association Awarded Federal Dollars to Support Los Angeles Health Centers

Posted: July 26, 2019

Los Angeles – July 26th, 2019 – The Health Resources and Services Administration has announced awards of $42 million in funding to 49 Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) across the nation. HCCNs provide technical assistance to federally-funded health centers, using information technology to cut costs and improve patient care. These awards will enable the HCCNs to support 1,183 federally-funded health centers across all 50 states. Among the awardees, the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County (CCALAC) will receive $1.43 million—its third consecutive award—to continue to serve Los Angeles County.

“Networks advance quality improvement and provide cost savings to the health care system. Members of the Los Angeles network received over $4.9 million in federal quality improvement awards in 2018, and saved nearly $2.9 million in technical assistance costs,” said Louise McCarthy, President and CEO of CCALAC. “We are excited to continue this work going forward with an expanded cohort of health centers.”

The new grant will enable CCALAC to grow its work, assisting 47 health centers in expanding the use of health information technology, empowering patients through patient engagement, and promoting data sharing through health information technology.

The list of the 47 health centers participating in CCALAC’s HCCN can be found here.
