Hudson River HealthCare provides the highest quality comprehensive primary, preventive, and behavioral health services to all who seek it, regardless of insurance status and ability to pay. It is a network of fourteen community health centers located in Peekskill, Beacon, Poughkeepsie, Amenia, Dover Plains, Pine Plains, New Paltz, Goshen, Haverstraw, Greenport, Walden and Monticello. All patients have a choice of his or her own primary care physician. Our staff members are board certified and highly skilled in their respective fields and include physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, midwives, social workers, and support staff. The purpose of this program is to provide an enhanced model of care that features open scheduling, expanded hours, and improved communication to improve the health status of underserved communities. It targets the rural and urban poor and uninsured, pregnant women, migrants and immigrants, agricultural workers, the homeless, children and adolescents, the elderly, and those with HIV or substance abuse problems. The main goal of this program is: • To provide 100 percent of patients with electronic health records (EHRs) • To measure EHR reports of encounters by provider • To offer same-day appointments with the patient's provider, and to have an average office visit cycle time of 45 minutes or less • To improve health outcomes through a preventive and planned care model • To eliminate differences in care and health status among racial, ethnic and economic groups • To ensure that 100 percent of patients recommend the health center to friends and family. • To evaluate the health service penetration rate for the target populations • Vital Aim: To achieve high productivity and staff satisfaction This practice as identified as a promising innovation for Coordinated chronic disease management by the he Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease, a diverse, national coalition of more than 100 partner organizations, committed to raising awareness of policies and practices that save lives and reduce health costs through more effective prevention and management of chronic disease.
