Integrated Information Technology
NCHA supports a fully shared electronic health record (including practice management) between physical, behavioral, oral, and population health partners. The platform also provides the framework to host e-mail, productivity, accounting, time-keeping and other software unique to the NCHA partners.
Integrated and Shared Information Technology Goals
- Make the patient’s electronic health record available to certified users in an easy and timely manner to facilitate the best care possible

- Create uniform data collection across locations of care and partner agencies
- Support population-based quality improvement and cost control activities using the most comprehensive data set available.
- Reduce individual agency costs for information technology by leveraging size and scope.
