Value & Impact Reports

Individual HC V and I Jan 2019 1 

With the current challenges facing health centers – funding uncertainties, increased competition, proposed changes to Medicaid, and the need to reduce costs – health centers need to engage with their community leaders, legislators, funders, and payers to demonstrate the value and impact they have on the communities they serve and the nation as a whole.

Capital Link has a newly-redesigned, customized Value & Impact infographic report to help you share your health center’s contributions. Statewide, congressional district and capital project infographic reports are also available.

This report illustrates the story of your health center along the following domains:
1. Employment and economic stimulus, using economic modeling software
2. Savings to Medicaid
3. Access to quality care for vulnerable populations
