Connected Communities of Care
PCCI is a mission-driven organization with industry-leading expertise in the practical applications of advanced data science and social determinants of health. We strive to leapfrog the status quo by harnessing the transformative potential of data. Our unique capabilities allow us to provide innovative, actionable solutions that more effectively identify needs, prioritize services, empower providers and engage patients.
PCCI started as a department within Parkland Health and Hospital System 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, the Parkland Foundation and the Parkland Community Health Plan. Our collaborative work focuses on the needs of vulnerable populations across North Texas and beyond.
OUR BUSINESS MODEL
We believe that data, done right, has the power to galvanize communities, inform leaders and empower people. We also believe that clinical data only paints a partial picture of an individual and his or her specific needs. Our business model focuses on cutting edge uses of data science, social determinants of health and clinical expertise across clinical and community settings.
We collaborate with Philanthropic Foundations, Federal Agencies, Rural and Urban Health Systems, Payers, Local Municipalities, Community Organizations and others who share our common interest in finding the most impactful ways to address the needs of vulnerable populations.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We quantify impact in four ways: (1) making a difference in the lives of patients (2) optimizing how care is delivered (3) advancing the field and (4) sharing our findings.
We are proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, but know that this is just the beginning.
