Developing Federally Qualified Health Centers into Community Networks to Improve State Primary Care Delivery Systems – Commonwealth Fund – 5 May  2011  [US]

“Overview
By fostering connections between federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and other private primary care providers, states may be able to connect Medicaid beneficiaries with services needed to help them manage their health and reduce costly visits to hospitals. FQHCs’ mandate to provide a comprehensive scope of primary and preventive health care and support services, coupled with their access to federal funds, gives them expertise and resources that might be leveraged in collaborative relationships with states and private practices. FQHCs may find that by entering into collaborative relationships with states and private practices, they strengthen their own financial position, advance their quality goals, improve their staffing mix, enhance the continuum of care and the kinds of services available to their patients, and further their mission.”
