Health Center Strong: Hallmarks of Compliant and High Performing Health Centers and the Path to Get There
Pre-Conference Session: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Building on the analyses of several recent studies that Capital Link has completed, this introductory overview provides Arkansas health centers with evidence of how financial strength interfaces with the ability to provide high-quality care. We will present the characteristics of health centers that perform well both financially and from a quality of care perspective and provide benchmarks toward which other health centers might strive to improve their performance. The session will also provide an overview of results from a financial and operational snapshot of Arkansas' health centers, to assess the extent to which health centers in the state are achieving high performance benchmarks. We will further examine various scenario tools to help health centers anticipate and prepare for the financial implications of potential changes to reimbursement policies and payer mixes.
