BronxTimes — Independence Care System (ICS) was recently named a recipient of an Affinity Legacy Community Grant to develop a Center of Excellence in Primary Care for people with physical disabilities in partnership with New York City Health and Hospitals (H+H), the largest community hospital system in the country.
The grant will allow ICS and H+H to move forward with a two-year-long project that will establish a primary care model for people with physical disabilities. Together in partnership with H+H, ICS will work to improve electronic medical records to identify and accommodate the needs of people with disabilities and document best practices, create educational materials to maximize the value of primary care visits and train staff and clinicians on disability-competent care.
