Network touted as a way to efficiently get needs
Three years of development and testing — as well as some national recognition along the way — have led to this point.
A network designed to more efficiently connect people with organizations providing medical, behavioral and social services is operational.
“It’s exciting,” said Jackie Sievers, director of implementation for the Community Resource Network (CRN).
Dick Thompson, executive director and chief executive officer of Quality Health Network based in Grand Junction, said the network helps connect people with the right services at the right time.
“CRN helps service providers of all types understand an individual’s needs from a whole-person perspective, leverage the work and the relationships that are already in place, reduce duplication of services and data entry and prioritize actions that make a real difference for those we all serve,” Thompson said.
