What are the benefits to joining an existing network?
There are many benefits to joining an existing Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) versus purchasing an EHR independently. The biggest benefit to joining a network is that a health center can gain valuable insights from collaborative efforts towards adopting and implementing health IT. The lessons learned from other member organizations' experiences can facilitate the start of health IT adoption. In terms of a health IT implementation, participation in a HCCN allows greater access to a higher level and larger depth of expertise, thereby reducing the cost and burden of locating and hiring experienced personnel.
