DUFFY HEALTH CENTER AWARDED
$15,000 STRATEGIC FOCUS GRANT
FOR ENHANCED TECHNOLOGY
Duffy Health Center received one of five Strategic Focus Grants from The Cape Cod Foundation this year. The center, which provides primary care and behavioral health services for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, received $15,000 to support implementation of a web-based health technology tool called DRVS. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health now requires health care practices to have an online tool that offers real-time data and reports to improve patient outcomes and to drive and measure improvement in population health management. The DRVS platform will help Duffy enhance patient care, provide the documentation needed to be recognized as a quality cost-effective provider, and meet the long-term technology demands tied to the Accountable Care Act.
