Community Health Services Group (CHS)

PH-DocThe Community Health Services Group (CHS) currently has 35 member counties and agencies. The MnCCC CHS User Group owns and manages PH-Doc. Over the past several years, the user group has invested time and money in a major rewrite of PH-Doc. We were a recipient of the Beacon Grant through a partnership with the Mayo Clinic. This work is now complete and PH-Doc can now run on two platforms and we have made great strides in implementing the interworking to allow for the electronic exchange of health records. The CHS group works closely with the Minnesota Department of Health on all of our projects. PH-Doc is HIPAA compliant.
