Message from the CEO

Allison Coleman, CEO

With plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of health centers in full swing, this issue of Capital Link reflects on the legacy of health centers and highlights ways to demonstrate value, measure impact and improve performance. The article Metrics that Matter reviews the importance of measuring and monitoring health center performance, a topic Capital Link has been focusing on in recent presentations, trainings, and research studies. We recently completed a comprehensive study, sponsored by Blue Shield of California Foundation, which resulted in a financial and operational profile of California health centers and a performance benchmarking toolkit. This California toolkit provides a starting point for a national performance benchmarking toolkit, currently in process.
 
This issue also provides an update on the latest federal issues and new resources, including details on the Health Infrastructure Investment Program funding opportunity. We also include recent health center highlights as well as a list of upcoming presentations and trainings. We hope you find this information helpful. Finally, we hope to see you at the NACHC Policy and Issues Forum. Be sure to visit us at booth #509.
