    National Health Center Week is an annual celebration designed to raise awareness about the valuable work that community health centers do. During this week, health centers across the country host events to educate people on healthcare and the types of services provided by the centers. Many events feature free health screenings, food and refreshments, prominent speakers, and more.

    "National Health Center Week is a tremendous opportunity to highlight the vital role health centers play in their community. We are appreciative of Sage's support to make the week even more successful for health centers across the country," said Dan Hawkins, Senior Vice-President of Policy and Research at the National Association of Community Health Centers. "Sage's efforts are helping to strengthen health centers in numerous communities, and we stand ready to work with everyone in the years ahead to make sure all people have a healthcare home at a community health center."

    Sage Healthcare Division has supported the event for four consecutive years. This year, Sage employees are volunteering their time at several health centers across the U.S., including:

    • Health Linc in Michigan City, Indiana; Knox, Indiana; and Valparaiso, Indiana-Sage employees will host a back-to-school fair and carnival in which each clinic will provide free sports physicals, immunizations, school backpacks stuffed with supplies and lunch will be served at each site; and
    • New Hanover Health Center in Wilmington, North Carolina-Sage employees will be scanning paper medical records into the clinic's electronic system.

    "Sage continues to dedicate itself to furthering the mission of improving patient outcomes and quality of care in the United States. Our involvement with National Association of Community Health Centers' National Health Center Week proves our commitment to this goal," said Lee Horner, Senior Vice President of Sales for Sage Healthcare Division. "Sage strives to continuously serve communities through programs where Sage employees volunteer countless hours and thousands of dollars to support worthy causes every year, including community health centers, which we salute for the important role they play in our healthcare system."

    Sage has been a longstanding provider of information technology solutions to the CHC and Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) market, said Tony Ryzinski, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Sage Healthcare Division, and maintains a strong commitment to this segment by developing products that address its unique needs.

    "We maintain a close relationship with our CHC partners and continually solicit their input and recommendations," Ryzinski said. "Many of our CHC partners provide critical insight into the needs of their clinics, providers and patients, and Sage recognizes the increasingly important role of the CHC and FQHC in today's evolving healthcare economy, as their mission broadens in providing access to care to broader segments of the population."
