Community health centers are participating in a healthcare marketplace that is gradually moving from volume to value. Because of health centers’ financial and infrastructure limitations, it may not be prudent for them to engage in full risk contracts at this point. This webinar will describe the continuum of value-based contracting, and suggest steps for health centers to move up the continuum. We will also outline basic elements of infrastructure to perform well in a value-based environment. Presenters from Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic will present their experience.
This webinar will focus on how to improve child weight screening, nutrition and physical activity counselling, and design appropriate and meaningful interventions according to health center peers. Discussion and demonstrations of how you may be able to optimize your EHR to encourage accurate and complete collection of required data, and identify children who may need intervention. A number of tools that support this quality improvement around addressing child weight and potential for obesity will be discussed, including Bright Futures guidance and data validation tools from HITEQ.

National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership Webinar
Health centers are increasingly recognizing the role of legal professionals in addressing SDoH needs – especially those identified and documented via PRAPARE – and are actively integrating lawyers on their teams through medical-legal partnerships (MLPs). The interconnectedness of SDoH screening and legal intervention has led health centers in two states, Iowa and Montana, to align and synchronize legal screening and referral activities between health and legal partners via the EHR. This webinar featured the journey of primary care associations (PCAs), health center controlled networks (HCCNs), health centers, and civil legal services non-profits in Montana and Iowa as they begin to integrate legal screening and referral into their EHRs. In a discussion of work in progress, each team demonstrated their EHR-based screening and referral processes and shared the opportunities and challenges presented by the project. They also previewed some of the next steps they plan to advance in the coming year.
This webinar provided an overview of the major changes for calendar year 2019 UDS data collection and reporting activities (to be reported Feb. 2020).
FQHC Webinar Series
Learn how to get started. We’ll review what you need to consider when developing your telehealth program, from selecting equipment to policy issues you need to consider. Hear from a FQHC success story on how they did it.
Building on the HITEQ Center’s previous webinars that introduced an Analytic Capability Assessment, building a roadmap for action and using data governance to maximize the value of data, the third webinar in this series explored how to grow and sustain these efforts. Too often, analytic initiatives and data capacity building are based on the heroics of a few individuals. In times of high turnover and changing priorities, how can we make data driven decision-making part of a health center’s culture? This webinar introduced the Data Strategy Worksheet, a tool developed by the Center for Care Innovation to help align data strategy with organizational strategy, as well as explored ways to implement a Data Services function. Even small agencies with scarce resources can develop the skillset, mindset, and toolset to embed and sustain a data driven culture.
