Erin Gael Chambers, Project Director
Hello, I’m Erin Gael Chambers, the HIV ACCESS PCMH Project Director at Alameda Health Consortium. In my former role as a medical case manager, I provided direct services for HIV-positive individuals and oversaw quality management for the Ryan White Part C Program in western Montana for nearly seven years. As a care-team member at a Federally Qualified Health Center, I experienced the transition from paper charts to an electronic health record and participated in the Patient Centered Medical Home recognition process. I am excited to be a part of the monumental changes taking place in the U.S. health care system right now. I look forward to continued collaboration with our partners at HIV ACCESS clinics as we advance panel management and expand the Patient Centered Medical Home model in Alameda County. If you have questions about the PCMH Demonstration Project, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Dan Clanon, IT Systems Specialist
Hello, I’m Dan Clanon, the IT specialist for HIV ACCESS PCMH Demonstration Project. I helped implement LabTracker at many of the ACCESS sites over the last decade and continue to maintain and enhance the current system as we move to NextGen. I’m an expert at all things LabTracker and am working to become expert with NextGen. If you have data in LabTracker or CareWare and need a report on those data or an extract of data in Excel or Access, I can do it. I hope to be able to say the same for NextGen in the coming months as I learn its data structure and reporting tools. A few weeks ago I was privileged to sit in on a patient visit to observe the new NextGen workflow. Although I was there to observe data entry, I was deeply moved by seeing in person how a talented and caring clinician helps a patient as part of a normal visit. This isn’t just a job for me. It’s helping all of you help the wonderful people in our community. I look forward to continuing to support the quality care we provide to our clients.
Megan Crowley, Project Coordinator
I joined the Consortium as the HIV ACCESS PCMH Project Coordinator this past May. I’m so glad to be back in the Bay Area after five years in New York City. Most recently, I was the Program Coordinator for the Partnership for Family Health, a consortium of clinics providing HIV Primary Care and supportive services to women, youth, and children in Northern Manhattan, New York City. During my time with PFFH, I led many cross-site activities, including integrating peers into the clinics, coordinating quality improvement efforts for a treatment adherence program, and conducting outreach and linkage activities. I received my MPH in 2008 from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, focusing on Sexuality and Health. I’m very excited to bring my experience working with clinics to the PCMH Project!
