Community Technology Cooperative (CTC) was formed to help Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) improve health and equity for under-resourced communities through technology. Comprised of FQHCs throughout Massachusetts, CTC is focused on transitioning our existing Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems to Epic.
We need a single powerful system that will allow us to manage the continuity of care for our patients. We also need a partner that understands community health centers. Being a part of CTC allows us to be at the table and use our voice in a meaningful way across the project. It’s a game changer.

C3 has the experience of successfully creating a health center network with shared goals and operation. As a member of CTC, we look forward to the possibilities of sharing support and data with partner health centers while being a part of a bigger network.
CEO, Duffy Health Center
Moving to Epic as a part of CTC aligns with our core values—specifically boldness, innovation, and integrity, which we define as keeping the promises we make to ourselves and each other. We promise every person who walks in our door good care, a good experience, respect, and the opportunity to be healthy... It’s a major opportunity to drive measurable improvements in community health.
CEO, Fenway Health
The pandemic has put even more pressure on our health care systems and providers. Inefficient and outdated EHR systems add to that burden but upgrading to a new solution can be costly and overwhelming for community health centers to implement on their own. CTC’s united approach removes many traditional barriers to progress. Together, member organizations benefit from reduced costs, a collaborative process, and a coordinated community roll out.
Epic is a best-in-class Electronic Health Records platform (EHR) that will allow community health centers to have a single fully integrated system to better manage patient care. This move will help FQHCs achieve their major goals and objectives including improving patient care, enhancing the caregiver experience, operating more efficiently, and eliminating disparities.
Each of our member health centers is represented on our Board of Managers as well as two members of the CTC leadership team – the President and Chief Information Officer. Together, we’re implementing best-in-class technology and systems to better serve Massachusetts communities.
Progress begins with great people. Let’s talk.Join Our Team
