VMC Foundation submits Beacon Community grant application for $20M

The VMC Foundation just submitted a $20 million federal grant application to establish a Patient Care Collaboration Platform through the Beacon Communities program. This exciting health information exchange will create seamless transitions of care for the “shared” patients seen at both the Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System and the Community Health Partnership clinics by creating an online portal where providers can access information about common patients. A huge thanks to the grant team from SCVHHS and CHP for their contributions to the submission. This is the VMC Foundation’s largest grant application ever! Stay tuned to find out if we are awarded the funds in March.
