Hospitals Building Healthier Communities: Investing Outside Institutional Walls

This webinar, in collaboration with the Association for Community Health Improvement, brought together practitioners from three health systems leading the way in implementing inclusive economic development and investment strategies to create healthier communities. The discussion used the findings of the Democracy Collaborative's "The Anchor Dashboard: Aligning Institutional Practice to Meet Low-Income Community Needs," as a starting point to show how hospitals can expand their positive community impact with existing resources.

Collaborations between FQHCs and hospitals for Population Health Improvement

Description: Federally Qualified Health Centers, important players in the health care safety net and among the largest providers of primary medical, behavioral, and dental care, are being expanded nationwide under the Affordable Care Act.  The ACA has major implications both for hospitals and FQHCs, particularly as many uninsured community members obtain coverage.  Effective relationships between FQHCs and hospitals often are challenging due a lack of shared vision, specific FQHC governance requirements and a lack of communication about the benefits of collaboration. 

This webinar will provide a rationale for initiating or enhancing hospital/FQHC collaboration, will describe barriers and risks to collaboration and ways to address them and will provide case study examples that illustrate how relationships can be structured to benefit communities and the respective organizations.
