NACHC currently partners with Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs), health centers, and other organizations to address key clinical issues facing health centers. Recent projects have been supported by the Health Resources & Services Administration’s Bureau of Primary Health Care, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the DentaQuest Foundation.
The Quality Center advances health outcomes, patient, and staff experience, health equity, and lower costs. We work with primary care associations, health center-controlled networks, and health center leaders, providers, and staff from across the country to improve care.
Investment in a diverse and resilient workforce that reflects the populations it serves and is equipped to address equity and social justice has always been core to the health center movement and mission. NACHC, in collaboration with its National Health Center Training and Technical Assistance (NTTAP) partners, is a national leader investing in the health center workforce and is engaged.
NACHC’s Clinical Informatics team empowers health center staff to improve patient care by using Electronic Health Records (EHR), Health Information Technology (HIT) tools, and data more effectively, by educating care teams in informatics principals and techniques, and enabling providers to manage populations and close care gaps.
