Total Health Care Collaborative Family Health Centers of Baltimore and Park West Health System, Inc.
Program Name: Baltimore FQHC Safety Net Health Center Collaborative
Grant Amount: $1,994,876/3 years
All three collaborative partners are FQHCs. Total Health Care, Inc. operates nine health centers serving Baltimore’s medically underserved and uninsured residents. FHCB operates four clinics and provides primary care services at low cost to consumers with a one-stop shop model. Park West has four locations and also serves Baltimore residents.
This project will transform 3 FQHCs to a PCMH with nurse care plan coordinators that will work with patients who have multiple chronic diseases to develop a care management plan. A nurse after-hour, first call system will be contracted and a new patient management system will be used by all 3 FQHCs. Grant will cover project director, RN care plan coordinator, contracted nurses, the coordinated EMR system and technical costs.
