Federally Qualified Health Centers

Federally Qualified Health Centers

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), you meet a wide range of outpatient needs, often providing comprehensive services – medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse, and specialty care. Working with hospitals and other clinics for patients with chronic conditions that may require advanced treatment, presents an opportunity for effective care coordination. Rural FQHCs have an even greater need for coordinated care. FQHCs face many of the same challenges as other types of outpatient care facilities – time limitations, comorbidity management, duplicate testing due to lack of information, a shortage of qualified clinicians, and public health crises, like the opioid epidemic.
