Vision:CHC for Public Health

Vision:CHC is a comprehensive software solution designed to meet the clinical, financial, and reporting needs of State public health departments.

Vision:CHC is the culmination of 30 years’ experience supporting facilities that provide a broad array of services to the underserved. The result is a unique combination of medical, behavioral health, administrative, and reporting solutions that is unsurpassed for Public Health.

Using program-centric systems, providers and their staff spend a third of their day entering patient information for one program that already exists in others. With Vision:CHC, they document patient information once for all programs, allowing them to spend more time with patients.

Vision:CHC EHR feels natural to community-based service providers because it was designed by physicians with experience managing community clinics. Its dynamic templates allow clinicians to quickly create encounter notes for patients receiving services under a variety of public health programs. Real-time queries and dashboards simplify chart reviews and compliance tracking for Meaningful Use, PCMH, and PQRS. Vision:CHC also interfaces with Immunization Registries, Communicable Disease Registries, and Health Information Exchanges.

Vision:CHC EHR Dashboards display Meaningful Use and Patient-centered Medical Home data real-time for both the patient and the entire clinic. Therefore, clinical and administrative staffs do not need to compile Meaningful Use, Medicaid, and PCMH statistics and reports.
