SHARE is now collaborating with UAMS North Central Family Medicine Center that provides primary care medical services to patients of all ages. They offer treatment for acute medical conditions but also ongoing treatment for chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension and arthritis. They cover all stages of life from pediatric conditions to senior health care.

The clinic provides convenient diagnostic and support services on site and also are able to perform minor office surgical procedures in clinic as well as offer routine adult and pediatric immunizations. Their caring and compassionate staff serves an 11-county region that includes: Marion, Baxter, Fulton, Sharp, Searcy, Van Buren, Stone, Cleburne, Izard, Independence and White.

The data exchange services will also give UAMS North Central Family Medicine Center in eleven counties in Northern and North Central Arkansas, secure access to important information such as lab results, updated patient records and demographic information. This ensures every care provider in a patient’s chain of care has consistent and current information, and that their records are more secure and accessible than with paper files. Together, SHARE and UAMS North Central Family Medicine Center are working to change health care for the better for the residents of Northern and North Central Arkansas. The UAMS North Central Family Medicine Center is affiliated with White River Medical Center, which is also connected to SHARE. The clinic is also affiliated with the UAMS Medical Center and clinics.
