VHC Health Partners with Unite Us to Address Critical Community Needs with Coordinated Resources

National Press Releases

NEW YORK  MAY 2  – 2023

Virginia Hospital Center (VHC Health), a community-based health system providing medical services to the Washington, D.C.Maryland, and the Virginia area, and Unite Us, the nation’s leading software company enabling cross-sector collaboration to improve people’s well-being, are partnering through the Unite Virginia network. This network allows users to send and receive secure, electronic referrals and monitor patient outcomes in real-time. Through their partnership, VHC Health and Unite Us aim to address the unmet needs of people and families throughout the state.

In Virginia, Unite Us connects people to much-needed resources and services, such as assistance with behavioral health, food, and housing. Partners in the Virginia network are connected through Unite Us’ shared technology platform, which enables them to securely send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. The Unite Virginia network is built in partnership with the Office of the Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources, the Virginia Department of Health, and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association.

“The need for collaboration across health care and wellness services has never been greater, and we are grateful to be partnering with Unite Us to help better establish a holistic level of care when it comes to providing for our patients both inside and outside of our facility walls,” said James Meenan, Associate Vice President of Population Health at VHC Health. “The Unite Us software links directly with our electronic health record system, EPIC, creating a seamless and convenient way for our patients to access a network of providers that can carefully transition them out of our health system to other levels of care, and connect them with community resources like stable housing options, food insecurity solutions, and more.”

Together, VHC Health and Unite Us will securely connect people in need with community-based resources that can be difficult to navigate otherwise. Unite Virginia provides a central point of contact where health and social services providers can securely access and refer people to needed services while monitoring progress and measuring outcomes.

“Unite Us’ collaboration with VHC Health will improve patient care management by connecting VHC patients to social care resources that impact people’s day-to-day lives,” said Martha Rodysill, Customer Success Manager at Unite Us. “Together, VHC Health and Unite Us are bridging the gap between health and social care across the communities we serve and remain committed to growing the momentum in Northern Virginia and the DC area.”

Joining the network is free of cost for community-based organizations and many organizations that are considered part of the safety net, like community health centers, free clinics, and nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits, community-based organizations, and other providers who want to connect their clients and patients to VHC Health’s services within Unite Us’ network can get in touch.
