Assessment of Health IT and Data Exchange in Safety Net Providers: Final Report Appendix. Introduction


The National Opinion Research Center (NORC) is pleased to present this report detailing findings from our site visit to Boston HealthNet in Boston, Massachusetts for the “Assessment of Health IT and Data Exchange in Safety Net Providers.” NORC conducted this site visit under contract with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation ( ASPE) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ( HHS).  The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) worked in conjunction with ASPE to guide activities under this project.

This report summarizes the experience of health centers members working with Boston HealthNet (BHN) to use and maintain a range of systems for administration and quality improvement including a centrally administered and hosted electronic health record (EHR). In addition to examining the experiences of BHN and its member health centers, this report discusses the role of Boston Medical Center ( BMC) in network level and health center level activities.
