My Care Community (MCC), a growing network of nearly three dozen area healthcare and social service providers under the direction of Linn County Public Health, today announced they are partnering with Unite Us, the nation’s leading technology company connecting health and social care services. Unite Us powers a secure, coordinated care network that enables healthcare providers and social care organizations to work across sectors, identify the needs of individuals and connect them to appropriate resources.
The Unite Us Platform, which powers the Unite Iowa statewide network in partnership with CyncHealth, will enhance MCC’s work by expanding referral capabilities to organizations across the state.
“Our collaboration with Unite Iowa aligns with our goal to make referrals faster and easier for doctors, social workers, mental health counselors and social care providers,” said Cindy Fiester, RN, Linn County Public Health Chronic Disease Services Coordinator. “The network will enable MCC to connect individuals and their families to healthy food, reliable transportation, opportunities for children to learn, a safe place to live and other services that keep people and their families safe and healthy,” she added.
