Delta Health Alliance Receives $600,000 Grant To Improve Leland Medical Clinic
Delta Health Alliance has been awarded $200,000 per year for three years by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to improve and expand the use of electronic health records at its Leland Medical Clinic. This grant provided funding throughout the country to small, rural health providers in clinics or hospitals.
Daniel Thomas, Delta Health Alliance Assistant Vice President & Clinic Administrator, thanked the Health and Human Services Department and said, “This grant will give us more and better tools for our electronic health records system to provide more comprehensive monitoring and assessment of our patients, enhance their experience with our clinic by reducing wait times, and improve their overall quality of health.”
According to Thomas, this grant is part of the Leland Medical Clinic’s plan to work closely with its patients with chronic diseases and to monitor their health on a consistent basis to avoid costly emergency room visits.
Leland Medical Clinic, supported by Delta Health Alliance since 2013, is a rural health clinic and a nationally recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home. The health care team at the clinic focuses on all aspects of the patient’s health and the electronic health record upgrades will allow the health care team to spend even more time with their patients and less time with recordkeeping.
