Northland receives grant funding
Northland Health Partners Community Health Center was among the health centers to receive Health Center Quality Improvement Grant Rewards. Northland received $9,500 for clinical quality improvers and $4,000 for advancing health information technology for quality.
According to a press release, some $144,752 in all was awarded to North Dakota health centers by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The grant money will be used to improve the quality, efficiency and value of health care at those facilities.
“President Trump’s vision for healthcare aims to deliver Americans better value from the care they receive and, ultimately, better health. Community health centers have consistently delivered these kinds of results, including high-quality primary care at a significantly lower cost than their peers and above-average results in controlling chronic conditions,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar in the press release. “This week’s awards recognize especially high-achieving health centers. America’s health centers are essential to producing results on our actionable public health challenges, like HIV/AIDS and the opioid crisis, as well as to building a healthcare system that delivers better value and puts the patient at the center.”
