Today there are more than 1,100 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) providing comprehensive health care services to America’s most vulnerable and poor populations—up from just 730 a few years ago.
These centers, which save the health care system $24 billion a year nationally, saw a whopping 20 million patients in 2011. Nearly 1.1 million of those individuals were homeless. And with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act the numbers will continue to climb. FQHCs are facing unique challenges.
FMA works with health centers to expand access to care for Americans throughout the country:
- Building strong teams that become data-driven decision makers
- Strengthening revenue cycles that keep pace with client needs
- Structuring efficiencies within existing centers
