CCS Salutes National Health Center Week!

Story by CCS Editor / August 8, 2022

Chronic Care Staffing, a leading provider of chronic care management, behavioral health integration, and annual wellness visit services, salutes National Health Center Week, August 7-13, 2022.

Celebrating the Health Center Mission

The week-long event serves as a platform to raise awareness and community buy-in of health centers, advocate for community health funding and policies, and celebrate the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.

Improving Patient Care, Reducing Costs

According to the National Association of Community Health Centers, these facilities have grown from their inception in the 1960s to support the healthcare needs of thirty million Americans today.

“Health centers help increase access to crucial primary care by reducing barriers such as cost, lack of insurance, distance, and language for their patients. In doing so, health centers…provide substantial benefits to the country and its health care system.”    

Additionally, according to the Health Center Advocacy Network, health centers at over 11,000 service delivery sites nationwide, “save the health care system more than $24 billion annually in reduced emergency, hospital, and specialty care costs.”

Health Center Challenges

Community Health Centers are a large and important segment of American healthcare delivery, and they are an important part of the Chronic Care Staffing family! How does CCS integrate with and contribute to the mission of health centers? By helping to address their most crucial challenges.

Health Centers face many of the same challenges seen in other sectors of healthcare, with funding questions at the top of the list. Most centers are funded through Affordable Care Act grants. Depending on the political winds, the ACA itself may be in jeopardy. Meanwhile, the ongoing Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement squeeze also takes a bite out of health center revenues. Together, these issues affect staff recruiting, as uncertain funding often prevents centers from offering competitive pay and benefits.
