Beacon Community Program

Greater Tulsa Health Access Network Beacon Community (Tulsa, OK)

The state of Oklahoma

Overview and Goals

MyHealth Access Network (MyHealth) is one of 17 Beacon Communities building and strengthening local health IT infrastructure and testing innovative approaches to make measurable improvements in health, care and cost. Meaningful Use of electronic health records (EHR) is the foundation of this exciting work in each community. Funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, MyHealth is focused on:

  • Improving health outcomes for patients by increasing provision of appropriate preventive services, such as breast cancer screening and immunizations for influenza and pneumonia
  • Achieving per-capita cost savings through improved care delivery for under-served populations, with an emphasis on access to specialty care
  • Closing regional disparities in health outcomes and showing that diverse communities can achieve high quality, affordable, and efficient care, as well as healthier populations
  • Utilizing health IT to enable a seamless, integrated health care system in which every encounter is supported by immediate access to relevant health information

This system has allowed us to do a better job of coordinating care, and this is one of the ways we can make the delivery of care more accurate, higher quality, lower cost, and more efficient.
