Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center receives $100,000 grant for patient portal Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center has been awarded $100,000 from the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City to aid in the development of a patient portal system. The goal is to improve patient health care outcomes and to achieve higher standards of quality care. “The portal will allow patients to better access their health information via the SURHC website — things such as their A1C
reading if they’re diabetic, blood pressure readings if they have heart problems — and it will help improve communication with their physician,” said Hilda Fuentes, chief executive officer of SURHC. Accessible in a number of different languages, the portal will provide disease specific tools and health information, provide symptom education, and link patients to timely and accurate publicly
available online health information. The new system will monitor a patient’s health status, so that providers can access real time information that will enable them to deliver proactive, planned care. The portal will allow providers to communicate with patients in an easy and seamless manner. Patient’s messages will flow into the patient’s health record so there is a complete record available

Manny Kicks Long Ear Lore Beginning January 17
Reading Across Missouri 2013
Join young people inside their newspaper Written by Chris Stuckenschneider Produced by the Missouri Press Foundation Read “Manny Kicks Long Ear Lore” only in your newspaper!
Newspapers across Missouri are connecting young readers to their communities and improving reading skills with Reading Across Missouri, an annual statewide reading campaign. Life’s no ﬁeld of clover for Manny. Over the years, his kind has gotten stuck with a bad reputation. They’re believed to be lazy, ugly and dumb. Manny has had it up to his long ears with this pile of mule hooey – and in a new eight-week serial story, he’s going to set the record straight. Your newspaper will publish “Manny Kicks Long Ear Lore” through the statewide reading effort organized by the Missouri Press Foundation to have young readers inside their community newspapers in 2013.
