Albany, New York () — A program aimed at providing care to people with disabilities in the Capital Region receives a funding boost. The Center for Disability Services will receive $2 million from the federal government to establish a partnership with the Albany Medical Center.
It will make it easier for people to access all the services they need in one place by allowing different healthcare facilities to share health records electronically. Defenders said it will make a big difference.
“They have points of care, but they’ve never had a health system, and hopefully we can build one for them, and that will be the win in this whole thing,” Greg Sorrentino, president and CEO of the Center for Disability Services. , said.
Supporters said it will also save healthcare providers thousands of dollars because they won’t have to run unnecessary tests.
