New Models for FQHC Partnerships with Hospitals

Wednesday, November 4, 2015, 2 to 3 p.m. EST — Federally Quality Health Centers (FQHCs) are an important part of the nation’s healthcare safety net, receiving a large share of community benefit funds from hospitals to provide primary, preventive and charity care to the poor and underserved. But the truth is FQHCs have the potential to do much more. Through a variety of new and innovative partnerships with hospitals, FQHCs are playing an expanded role in care coordination, behavioral health, team-based care, residency programs and risk-sharing arrangements. During this webinar, HMA Principals Margaret Kirkegaard, MD, and Margarita Pereyda, MD, will outline the ways in which FQHCs can bring additional value to hospitals, improving care and reducing costs. The webinar will feature guest presenter, Santina Wheat, MD, from Northwestern McGaw Family Medicine Residency at Humboldt Park, a Teaching Health Center, and a partnership between Northwestern University, Erie Family Health FQHC, and Norwegian American Hospital.
