Applicant Organization Name: San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium Address: 170 Capp Street, Suite C San Francisco, CA 94110-1210 Project Director Name: Michael Garcia Contact Phone Number: 415-355-2244 Office/415-355-2277 Fax Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org Website Address: www.sfccc.org Grant program funds requested: $1,000,000 The scope of activities for the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC) and each sub-awardee are: (1) SFCCC will use its Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) funds to purchase an interface that communicates between computer systems used by the San Francisco Department of Public Health and computer systems used by the labs at SFCCC clinics. This electronic interface will improve the accuracy and timeliness of data in each consumer's health record by reducing the amount of manual entry and chances for human error. Additionally, SFCCC will use CDS funds to offset administrative costs associated with this grant opportunity to distribute, monitor, and report all purchases with CDS funding. (2) BAART Community HealthCare will use its CDS funds to purchase new primary care medical equipment, office furniture, cold storage units, and computers to serve historically underserved populations' primary health care needs. (3) Curry Senior Center will use its CDS funds for computers and other electronic equipment for a new wellness lab and expand videoconferencing capabilities to expand educational and social opportunities in four classrooms. Furthermore, 17 staff members will receive new computers and other electronic equipment. (4) HealthRIGHT 360 will use its CDS funds to purchase 35 new computers and mobile stands to allow easy transport from one area to another, including during patient exams. The current computers are obsolete and need to be replaced. (5) Mission Neighborhood Health Center will use its CDS funds to add new dental equipment to expand its existing dental program
for underserved area residents. (6) North East Medical Services will use its CDS funds to purchase a Cepheid GeneXpert PCR (polymerase chain reaction) Analyzer to test for COVID-19 in the clinic's consumers for their Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Certified Lab. (7) Saint Anthony Medical Center will use its CDS funds to purchase medical equipment and health information technology to (1) measure and store patient vital signs directly into a patient's OCHIN Epic electronic health record, (2) Dragon Dictate software to allow provider notes to dictate directly into a patients electronic health record, and (3) a PAMI software package to reconcile patient allergies, medications, and immunization records into each patient's electronic health record to improve patient outcomes through reduced errors. (8) San Francisco Community Health Center will use its CDS funds to install the OCHIN Epic billing services module into its electronic medical record system. As the San Francisco Community Health Center is migrating its electronic health record system from eClinicalWorks to OCHIN Epic, they recently decided to transition from a third-party billing company and utilize OCHIN Epic's billing services. The cost savings realized by the billing transition to OCHIN Epic will allow a more significant expansion of patient care. (9) South of Market Health Center will use its CDS funds to hire a computer engineering consulting firm to assess the computer and Wi-Fi networks of the clinic. Based on the findings of that assessment, South of Market Health Center will also use CDS funds to install new and updated hardware to increase computing and Wi-Fi network capacity, including telehealth services. All proposed projects align with the purpose of the CDS funding to improve health outcomes and health equity by increasing access to higher quality health care services.
