Online health care platform streamlines collaboration among nonprofits

Meals on Wheels San Antonio now has a faster way to get food delivered to clients in need.

The nonprofit is among nearly 50 organizations — including YMCA, Goodwill Industries of San Antonio and Catholic Charities — that have begun using an online system, called Signify Health, that quickly shares client records and referrals with other local charities and organizations.

Signify Health is a HIPPA-compliant platform used by health plans and health care organizations, and it includes a component geared toward fostering collaboration among health care and social services providers. It is available for free to nonprofits that join the Alamo Area Community Network, a system of organizations that provide social services involving food, transportation, housing and other needs.
