Community Health Center Information Systems Assessment: Issues and Opportunities. Final Report. 3.3 CHAN Information Systems Implementations


In this section we summarize the two primary information systems implementations coordinated by CHAN for the benefit of its member health centers: the Logician EMR system and the Millbrook practice management software suite, both of which are now owned by GE and marketed together as the Centricity Information Systems package.  We focus in particular on 1) issues related to implementation of these applications and 2) key functionality and benefits offered by these systems based on health center experiences to date. We note that both initiatives grew out of the perceived need to develop a model for sharing access to and support for mission critical applications across health centers. Both of these activities were accelerated by the initiation of the BPHC’s SIMIS grant program.
