3 CHARGE All components of the health center movement must continue to work together on policy issues while helping build the capacity to respond to a changing health care marketplace and ensure health center operations are efficient and effective. Develop a clear set of time specific actions that enable NACHC, PCAs, Networks & Health Centers to lead the way in achieving positive results related to access, quality, and cost NACHC WINTER STRATEGY MEETING

4 HEALTH CENTER ASSETS AND VULNERABILITIES ASSET Expertise in serving vulnerable populations -- services under one roof; staff with cultural/ linguistic competencies Relationship with patients/communities we serve - we know them best & can communicate with them VULNERABILITY Improve the patient experience or lose patient loyalty Lack detailed outreach, enrollment, and navigation strategies

5 HEALTH CENTER ASSETS AND VULNERABILITIES ASSET Existing programs, e.g., NHSC, help retain and recruit providers Have the data to make the health center value proposition Largest primary care network (patients, providers, etc.) – a “precious” commodity VULNERABILITY Strong competition, including inability to match salaries offered Not using the data we have to its full potential, e.g., comparative performance analysis Don’t act like a “precious commodity”; improve alignment and use of assets

6 HEALTH CENTER ASSETS AND VULNERABILITIES ASSET Knowledge of Medicaid; flexibility to experiment with APMs PCMH, including experience with EHRs, chronic care management and service integration Consumer-based boards ETC.! VULNERABILITY Limited Medicaid partner- ships; dependent on payment model that is bound to change Care coordination and behavioral health capacity need to be increased Consumer-based boards – without proper training, development, and communication, become a liability ETC.!

7 CROSS-CUTTING CONCERNS 1.UNITY – “We are all stronger when we stand together and act together!” 2.DATA – We have data that we are not using to define performance measures and compare performance. 3.PATIENTS – “Our patients are potentially someone else’s enrollees!” 4.STAFF AND BOARDS – We must ensure that our staffs and board members are well informed NACHC WINTER STRATEGY MEETING

8 CROSS-CUTTING CONCERNS 5.TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP – “NACHC and the health center movement must embrace transformational leadership as a core value…” 6.

9 RECOMMENDED ACTIONS FOR REACHING ALL HEALTH CENTERS 1.Message reinforcement via NACHC and PCA meetings and communications. 2.Sharing of patient stories, best practices and lessons learned. 3.NACHC and PCAs target and reach out to those health centers that are not active participants in either or both associations – including “a buddy system.” 2013 NACHC WINTER STRATEGY MEETING

10 RECOMMENDED ACTIONS FOR REACHING ALL HEALTH CENTERS 4. Regular updates presented to NACHC, PCA, and Network board members. 5.Communication strategy that uses more than usual venues – maximize social media. 6.Use other forums to reach staff other than health center CEOs (CFO trainings, clinician trainings, board member trainings, etc.) NACHC WINTER STRATEGY MEETING
