Awards and Grants

The Duke Endowment Grant

Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA) was awarded $1.46 million dollars in grant funding from The Duke Endowment to assist with the expansion of the regional Health Information Exchange (HIE). The grant funding, that was provided over three years, was used to connect Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) providers, safety-net organizations, and some specialists identified by CCNC. This grant also helped offset the costs of the orders and reporting interfaces. The establishment of an HIE in our communities continues to improve the coordination of patient care by providing a more timely exchange of medical information.

The Duke Endowment, in Charlotte, N.C., seeks to fulfill the legacy of James B. Duke by enriching lives and communities in the Carolinas through higher education, healthcare, rural churches and children’s services. Since its inception in 1924, the Endowment has awarded nearly $2.8 billion in grants.
