Clinical Quality Services
The Florida Association of Community Health Centers (FACHC) understands that the leading goal of Florida’s Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) is to provide quality primary healthcare services to the various underserved, un-insured, and/or special populations that they serve. This goal would be unattainable if not for dedicated clinical staff ensuring that all Floridian’s, regardless of insurance or income status, have a permanent medical home.
As clinicians are at the heart of the work of Florida’s Federally Qualified Health Centers, FACHC consistently endeavors to expand the assistance offered to health centers in their efforts to deliver quality healthcare services.
FACHCs Clinical Quality Services includes assisting health centers in the development or refinement of quality infrastructures through training and support in several aspects. FACHC provides support for health centers participating in the Bureau of Primary Health Care’s Health Disparities Collaboratives as well as provides support in the areas of Quality Management, Risk Management and Patient Safety.
Our Clinical Quality Services activities are designed to promote the sharing of ‘best practices’ and improve communications between clinical professionals across the state. Our focus is on serving the needs of Federally Qualified Health Center clinicians in all areas of care, including primary medical, dental, mental health and pharmacy among others.
