Quality & Technology Initiatives Coordinator
- Job posted by Community Health Care Association of New York State
The mission of the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) is to ensure that all New Yorkers, including those who are medically underserved, have continuous access to high quality community-based health care services including a primary care home. To do this, CHCANYS serves as the voice of community health centers as leading providers of primary health care in New York State. CHCANYS is a dynamic, team-oriented, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of and provides technical assistance to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) throughout New York State. FQHCs provide comprehensive community-based primary and preventive care services to anyone who seeks care, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
CHCANYS is New York State’s Primary Care Association, comprised of all of the FQHCs in New York State. New York’s nearly 800 FQHCs sites provide primary care services to 2.2 million New Yorkers annually and are central to both federal and state health care reform strategies. CHCANYS is nationally recognized for its programs in health policy, quality improvement, health information technology, health system planning, and training and technical assistance.
CHCANYS’ Quality & Technology Initiatives (QTI) division supports New York FQHCs to achieve the Quadruple Aim through a satisfied workforce, successful delivery of high quality, patient centered, and cost-effective primary health care for medically underserved populations. Quality & Technology Initiatives leverages resources and partnerships to support health centers in their strategic use of data and health information technology to improve care processes and outcomes. A web-based data analytics platform, along with other supporting software, is a core component in how QTI supports FQHCs statewide. This approach enables CHCANYS to effectively advance health center’s capacity to address their patients’ social determinants of health, integrate primary care and behavioral health, as well as implement other critical strategies to help providers as they transition to value based payment models.
The QTI Project Coordinator plays an integral role for the team, helping to manage a diverse portfolio of projects that span health information technology, chronic disease management and preventive care.
