Access Family Care clinics will use federal grant for system upgrades

Awarded nearly $118,000

JOPLIN, Mo. - Access Family Care clinics received a $117,914 federal grant.
The Department of Health and Human Services awarded the grant to Access Family Care on Wednesday. 
$55,000 of that grant is because the clinics offer whole health care. They cover the patient's dental, medical, and behavioral health care. 
Access Family Care serves 7 counties and has 9 different locations.
Officials say the grant will be used to continue improving quality care, either through information technology or patient software programs.

"What we're most excited about is the recognition of our quality. We've worked so hard, and we know we've done a good job, but to have someone else see us on the outside and say 'hey you're doing a good job on your patient care, you've reduced medical errors, providing good patient satisfaction', those kinds of things that's what we're really happy about" said Steve Douglas, Access Family Care's Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator.

The grant money is expected to be in the hands of Access Family Care within the next 90 days.
