Award Description: These five projects increase access to and quality of care through expanded hours, staff, technology, and locations. Each project provides for improved patient outcomes with increased efficiency. The relocation of Marysville Immediate Care will increase access to and improve the quality of care for pts. by increasing the number of treatment rooms from 3 aging rooms to 7 state-of-the-art rooms. An additional Primary Care Physician will be hired which increases pt. encounters. Assuming responsibility for the Sutter County Clinic ensures the 2,786 patients currently being cared for at this facility will be able to have a continuity of care at this familiar clinic location. The HIT system is obsolete. Retrieving data is difficult and hinders reporting. This system is not capable of integrating with EHR. The new system is an upgrade from the same provider, so the staff is familiar with many of its components. The addition of Electronic Health Records will allow clinicians total real-time information on the patient they are seeing. EHR reduce the amount of file storage. EHR eliminate the need to page through paper files for the needed patient information. In 2007 the Peach Tree facility provided 38,900 encounters to the target population. It is projected that this number will swell to 61,746 by 2010. In order to fill the need for additional treatment space, 1,800 sq.ft of Pediatric treatment rooms will be added and the current Pediatric dept. will be relocated to this new space. This move will enable Peach Tree to use the former Pediatric section to house an additional Family Practice Physician and an additional Mid-Level Provider. The increased patient load will necessitate the addition of 1,200 square feet of administrative space. As a contingency, this new administrative space will be plumbed for use as dental operatories at some time in the future.
Project Description: Our activities included purchasing HIT equipment and medical equipment. It also included research and training for purchasing an EHR system in the future.
