Flu Vaccinations Available at JPHSA's East Jefferson and West Jefferson Health Centers
Flu vaccinations are now available through JeffCare, a program of JPHSA. According to the Director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vaccination by the end of October is recommended when possible. However, people should not hesitate to get vaccinations throughout the influenza season. Vaccinations administered in December or after, even if influenza activity has already begun, are likely to be beneficial.

U.S. Health and Human Services Awards Funding to Jefferson Parish Human Services Authority
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced funding for Jefferson Parish Human Services Authority to improve its electronic health records system for its JeffCare program. JeffCare, a program of JPHSA, provides integrated primary care and behavioral health services from two Health Centers in East Jefferson and West Jefferson.
The grant is part of $87 million from the Affordable Care Act’s Community Health Center Fund going to 1,310 health centers across the country and 32 health centers in Louisiana. This Delivery System Health Information Investment Award supports enhancements in health information technology that will allow health centers to improve services delivery. The increased use of health information technology is part of a national effort to build a health care system that delivers better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.
"This will assist us in implementing a population health analysis solution that will assist our care managers in providing an individualized health care experience with triaging patients and interventions while simultaneously improving communication among the provider team,” said Shannon Sumrall, the application manager for JPHSA’s electronic health record.
