PCCI started as a department within Parkland Health and was spun out as an independent, not-for-profit organization in 2012 to not only serve the needs of Parkland, but to also pursue additional transformative initiatives that could have a broader impact. PCCI remains tightly connected to Parkland Health, the Parkland Foundation and the Parkland Community Health Plan. Our collaborative work focuses on the needs of vulnerable populations across North Texas and beyond.
PCCI Solves Community Health Problems
PCCI’s team members have extensive experience in working with analytics and healthcare data and in the development, testing, and validation of a wide array of multi-institution, algorithm-driven practice protocols that cross diverse geographies and populations. Our top-of-the line digital data environment, Isthmus™, is a healthcare-specific, interoperable, analytical platform where we can securely assemble data from disparate sources and normalize and standardize data streams to feed into our state-of-the-art data analytics.
To help organizations obtain
a more comprehensive and holistic understanding of their communities and service populations, PCCI has developed a web-based tool, the Community Vulnerability
Compass (CVC). CVC users can visualize and more fully understand the context and complexities of the social barriers to health, access, and well-being of a community’s most vulnerable populations. These insights can both inform and enhance SDOH-based initiatives.
PCCI’s Connected Communities of Care (CCC) address critical gaps between clinical care and community services in the current healthcare system. CCC includes technology, community alliances, and governance for data sharing, care coordination, and community alignment. We believe that CCC are the way to make social determinants of health actionable to ultimately achieve whole-person health.
Challenging times often accelerate innovation and collaboration. This has certainly been the case with COVID-19. We’ve strengthened and expanded our partnerships with Parkland and the North Texas community by building new foundational capabilities that will have an impact for years to come. We’ve worked closer than ever with Parkland IT and population health leadership, DFW Hospital Council: Dallas County, the City of Dallas and many other health systems, schools, and community-based organizations.
Our success requires a top-of-the line digital data environment where we can securely assemble data from disparate sources and normalize and standardize data streams to feed into our state-of-the-art data analytics. Isthmus™ was conceptualized from our own need to have a healthcare-specific, interoperable, analytical platform to build and more rapidly deploy (e.g., weeks vs months) scalable and repeatable solutions and to collaborate more efficiently with any provider. Isthmus currently supports >10 AI/ML models across diverse Texas settings.
