PCIC has been developing and providing innovative approaches to Care Coordination, Population Health and Health Information Technology. Here is a look at PCIC as we evolved over the years, and the history of our parent organization – Healthcare for Special Populations.
Health Care for Special Populations (HCSP) was founded by David Buck, James Turley and Kallol Mahata as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to provide resources and serve the needs of vulnerable populations.
HCSP developed one of the first web-based Electronic Medical Record System in the country, for street outreach program, using a Goal Negotiated Care model.
We gratefully received initial funding support from the Edith & Robert Zinn Foundation, Rockwell Fund and the Baxter Trust Fund.
The Primary Care Innovation Center (PCIC) was launched with the purpose of developing a care coordination pilot program to improve quality of life for emergency room (ER) and hospital Super-users, while dramatically reducing their high utilization and costs to the health care system.
