NEW GPO VENDOR ANNOUNCEMENT
NCCHCA Welcomes PicassoMD
The North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) is excited to announce the addition of PicassoMD as our latest vendor member. Our GPO’s primary objective is to enhance shared services and strategic sourcing solutions for health centers across North Carolina. We believe that partnering with PicassoMD will enable us to achieve this goal by offering specialty e-consults through their Curbside platform.
Description of Services
PicassoMD Curbside is an informal interprofessional communication between a primary care provider (PCP) and a specialist. PicassoMD has created an online platform that can rapidly match a PCP with a specialist across nearly 30 service lines to support and augment clinical decision-making. Once connected, providers can communicate through a chat-like interface with the specialist.
All communications and images are exchanged on PicassoMD’s HIPAA compliant mobile/web-based platform, and a transcript of the curbside is automatically generated upon its completion.
With existing engagements with Kintegra Health and Blue Ridge Health, PicassoMD’s joining NCCHCA’s GPO is a natural progression that will expand the range of services available, generate cost savings, and optimize efficiencies for the benefit of our members and their patients.
For inquiries regarding initiating a partnership with PicassoMD, interested health centers should reach out to NCCHCA’s Director of Business Development: Karen Pryce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCCHCA extends its sincere appreciation to PicassoMD for their dedication and efforts in establishing this collaboration. For additional information, please visit the PicassoMD website or contact Karen Pryce.
