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.
FQHC Webinar Series
There is increased interest in how telehealth can be used to address substance use disorders (SUD) as well as funding by governmental agencies to provide such services.

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).
