Three years ago, the Executive Directors of the Richmond area free clinics formed a workgroup to define and prioritize their information technology needs. MedVirginia assisted in this planning process, and adopted the resulting roadmap as the framework for utilizing the Governor’s Health Information Technology (HIT) Council funds in driving technology adoption at four free clinics (Cross Over Ministry, Fan Free Clinic, Love of Jesus, and Richmond High Blood Pressure Center.)
To date, significant accomplishments have been made that are already driving improvements in clinical workflow and enhancements to the quality of care provided to patients.All of the free clinics:
MedVirginia would like to thank Governor Kaine and the members of the HIT Council for their support of HIT initiatives in Virginia. MedVirginia’s vision is for central Virginia to be the most electronically integrated medical community in the U.S., and we are proud that we have collectively achieved this vision for the Richmond-area free clinics and the patients they serve.
