Independence Blue Cross Foundation issues grants to improve primary care access

The Independence Blue Cross Foundation announced its commitment to $1.5 million in grants over the next three years to help various health centers improve patient access to primary care. A five-month assessment of the Foundation's Blue Safety Net health center grant recipients revealed the need to increase access to care through technology or other services, eliminate barriers to care and explore telehealth opportunities. The funding will go toward helping organizations create a "collaborative and healing environment that improves the efficacy in the treatment of traumatized individuals," according to the foundation. Announcement
