Common Ground Health Clinic in New Orleans, Louisiana has selected Eddy to manage enrollment processes and provider data.
The Common Ground Health Clinic started on September 9 , 2005 just days after hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. Due to the humanitarian disaster and apparent lack of governmental response, two community activists, Sharon Johnson and Malik Rahim put out a call for healthcare workers to help meet the overwhelming need. The clinic started as a first aid station with the arrival of “Street Medics”, which are first responders that gained notoriety through mass mobilizations of the anti-globalization movement. The clinic was originally set up in a mosque, with space being generously donated by the Masjid Bilal.
“Eddy isn’t just interested in your total provider count or to which credentialing standards you adhere,” states Jennifer Vines, CEO of Eddy, “which is why I spend time learning about where our clients have been, and where they are headed. To discover that Common Ground was created during one of our country’s most perilous natural disasters made my heart big! I want to be surrounded by people like that,” Vines continues.
Eddy’s inclusive pricing means that clients have access to all software features without paying additional fees. Organizations with provider numbers ranging from 5 to 9,000 benefit from the same features, while still able to customize based on specific needs. Eddy users are also able to begin using the solution with little to no training because of the intuitive design that was built specifically for credentialing specialists. However, training is provided at no additional cost, of course.
Eddy is a Dallas-based credentialing software company that was founded in 2016 and has a patent-pending on its proprietary solution.
