Community Health Centers in Southeastern PA
Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are local, non-profit or city-run primary care providers serving low-income communities. Health Centers provide many services under one roof - including medical care, dental care and behavioral health care - for all ages, from infants to seniors. Highly qualified doctors, dentists, nurses, psychologists, social workers and other professionals offer culturally sensitive, affordable care, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay.
Facts about Health Centers
HFP's Support for Health Centers
The Health Federation of Philadelphia (HFP) supports our members by enhancing health center access to information, technical assistance and resources. HFP convenes, coordinates and advocates for health centers, and serves as a forum for regular network-level discussion of emerging policy, funding, reimbursement, compliance, quality and other issues affecting health center interests.
Here are some examples where HFP has addressed emerging issues by bringing together member health centers, other partners, outside experts, and funders:
- Behavioral Health Integration: HFP has worked with members to develop and implement a model integrating behavioral health consultation into primary care. This project has included extensive provider training, on-site technical assistance, and advocacy with insurers and others to ensure sustainability. This work has expanded to include a focus on screening for and treatment of substance use disorder.
- Optimizing EMR use and the effective use of data for quality improvement and population health: HFP helps members to select and use new technologies effectively and to enhance capacity to understand data and use information effectively to maximize patient health and prepare for the transition to value based payment. See Health Center Controlled Network page for more information on this initiative.
- Workforce Development and Support: HFP convenes groups of care management leaders, Chief Medical Officers, community health workers, among others, across health centers to foster peer learning and support with expert facilitation and input.
HFP’s members are fifteen Community Health Center Organizations in Southeast Pennsylvania. Most of these have multiple service delivery sites. Click on each logo to get to the health center organization’s website, or for site locations, go to our map.
