High-Performing Community Health Centers: What It Takes


Federally funded community health centers (CHCs) are an integral part of the health care safety net for disadvantaged communities. Not much is known, however, about how costs and quality vary among CHCs, or how the performance and fiscal health of these vital facilities could be strengthened. For this project, researchers will determine the extent to which health centers in three states with large low-income, minority populations (California, Massachusetts, and Texas) provide cost-effective care, identify health centers that provide high-quality care at reasonable cost, and pinpoint the factors that contribute to the success of high-performing CHCs. The Texas Association of Community Health Centers will provide cofunding.
