Federally Qualified Health Centers & Community Health Centers

Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and community health centers (CHCs) provide critical services to often-underserved patient groups—but a lack of resources, the constant need to meet funding requirements, and more bring burdens that can prevent organizations from delivering quality care.

Avoid losing funding, navigate complicated legal and compliance issues, and address operational needs with guidance from our professionals—so you can focus on what matters most: providing and increasing access to quality care for vulnerable patients while bringing equity to the diverse communities you serve.

Navigate Industry Challenges

Explore how our industry-focused services can help your organization confront the unique, pressing issues FQHCs and CHCs face.

Expand Funding

Boost equitable access to care within your community by finding new opportunities to fund mental health, behavioral health, or other health and dental services needed in your area.

Strategically identify federal funds and grants to pursue and leverage other financing opportunities—such as the New Market Tax Credit and other credits and incentives designed to facilitate investment in low-income communities—that can help fund or bridge financing gaps for facility updates and expansions, equipment purchases, and more.

Confidently navigate these application processes with guidance to develop budgets, narratives, and necessary documents, as well as receive continued grant accounting and reporting support.

Understand potential requirements tied to your federal or allocated funding sources so your organization can better position itself to maintain its cash flow position and financial awareness.

Assess how your organization uses funds and how your organization maintains accountability and compliance in serving patients and your community—whether sourced from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) or US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grants, or other reimbursements.

Maintain Compliance

Address and prepare for the many regulations, rules, and guidelines that must be followed related to your funding, including requirements concerning government compliance, coding validation, coding department redesigns, electronic health record (EHR) internal controls, HIPPA, Medicare and Medicaid cost report and reimbursement, corporate compliance programs, and more.

Avoid draining precious time and resources adhering to regulations with our professionals providing compliance roadmaps.

Prevent suspension from participating in crucial programs such as the 340B Drug Pricing Program—which could lead to higher prescription prices for patients or hefty repayment requirements to manufacturers—should you fail to meet compliance requirements.

Protect Data and Assets

Cybercriminals infiltrate systems at alarming rates with targets including sensitive organizational and patient information, financial systems, and more.

A security breach could have massive financial and reputational implications for your organization—ranging from regulatory penalties and infrastructure disruption to stolen funds and damaged patient relationships—if sensitive data leaks. HIPAA and personal health information compliance requirements make the consequences of a breach even more challenging compared to other industries.

The most effective way to mitigate a breach is to prevent one from happening. Test your current systems, or implement new ones, to evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Support Your Workforce

Labor shortages, physician burnout, rising retirements rates, and lack of a talent pipeline create an urgent focus to gain the most from your workforce by increasing efficiency and effectiveness—while still supporting your providers and staff.

Shift your organization away from conventional human resources (HR) practices that only measure success through transactional activities—and evolve your HR function to deliver strategic talent programs with organization-wide impacts.

  • Improve talent acquisition
