TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTERS (TACHC) PARTNERS WITH UNITE US
The partnership is to address unmet social needs and improve health outcomes for Texas' most underserved populations
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Texas Association of Community Health Centers (TACHC), a private, not-for-profit membership association committed to advancing equitable access to quality healthcare in Texas, and Unite Us, the nation's leading technology company connecting health and social care, are partnering to expand a coordinated care network that addresses unmet social needs and improves Texans' health outcomes throughout the state.
"We believe data is power in helping TACHC reach its mission of health equity, access, and quality for all Texans," said Jana Eubank, Executive Director at TACHC. "Our partnership with Unite Us will give our community health centers the tools and data they need to empower decision-making to address non-medical drivers of health, which ultimately improves a patient's health outcomes."
TACHC will join the Unite Texas network, which started in 2017. Partners in the network are connected through Unite Us' shared technology platform, which enables them to securely send and receive closed-loop, electronic referrals and helps connect people to much-needed resources and services such as housing, food, transportation, and employment assistance.
"Our partnership with TACHC comes at a critical time, and we are incredibly honored to work with them," said Brandon White, State Network Director at Unite Us. "Expanding the Unite Texas network will increase access to much-needed resources for Texans by working alongside valuable community health centers and community-based organizations. Our collective goal is to provide equitable access to care for all residents as efficiently and effectively as possible, no matter where in the state you live."
The partnership offers all Texas community health centers access to Unite Us' social need screening, assessment, ad referral platform at no cost. By partnering with Unite Us, TACHC will gain an improved understanding of patient needs across the state, identify gaps and inequity, and inform policy decisions.
