Community Health Centers Reach Over 29 Million Americans
How might we create telemedicine strategies to
better serve our communities?
The pandemic has quickly revealed how the absence of strong digital health systems severely limits the ability of Community Health Centers from serving their communities. Now more than ever before, we are relying on digital connectivity to function as an inclusive society. At this moment in our history, we have an opportunity to design an accessible digital health system to replace our antiquated approach.
PYXERA Global is working in collaboration with NACHC on this national–level challenge. NACHC is the leading national advocacy organization supporting federally qualified community health centers and the expansion of healthcare access for the medically underserved and uninsured. In any given month, NACHC’s advocacy and policy decisions affect one-tenth of the population.
Anchoring the second challenge, Iowa PCA is a trusted voice in healthcare among vulnerable populations. The organization supports health centers across the state, working with centers that serve more than 216,000 Iowans each year. This project will serve as a test case to develop a model for other states across the country. Impacts here will have a ripple effect with countrywide implications.
