It's important to evaluate the financial outcomes of all aspects of a hospital to help determine if improvements should be made. Join FORVIS' healthcare team as we explore converting physician clinics into federally qualified health center look-alikes (FQHC LA)—an option that can potentially increase your margins and notch a win for your community and patients. We'll cover Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) requirements for FQHC LA status and the pros and cons of converting your clinic.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the HRSA guidelines and requirements for FQHC LA status
- Describe the pros and cons of hospitals converting outpatient clinics to FQHC LAs
- Evaluate a community needs assessment and how competition in the service area factors into HRSA approvals
