What We Already Know About Cost Savings “Health centers save $1,263 per person per year, lowering costs across the delivery system‒from ambulatory care settings to the emergency department to hospital stays” Source: NACHC analysis based on Ku L et al. Using Primary Care to Bend the Curve: Estimating the Impact of a Health Center Expansion on Health Care Costs. GWU Department of Health Policy. Policy Research Brief No. 14. September 2009.
Lessons Learned You need good people to do hard work! Systems are not designed for innovative work! Chances are no one has gotten this far before! Sometimes being a gardner is all you can do! Be realistic about what change means! Buy in is crucial, it just may not always come from the top or look the way you envisioned!
