HRSA is planning and executing more and more HRSA Operational Reviews to FQHC's and FQHC Look Alikes throughout the country
HRSA is planning and executing more and more Operational Reviews of FQHC's throughout the country. FQHCmd has learned that more and more are planned. This is a comprehensive review of your clinic, management and governance areas and covers the 19 program requirements that HRSA has identified.
The 19 program requirements apply to all health centers, but the reviews will pay particular attention to the specific performance improvement status and technical assistance needs of New Start organizations that may be providing primary care services for the first time.
We are also aware that some health centers have been identified to review due to mismanagement and could possibly look at losing funding. With the NAP grantees just announced, it is important that your health center is in compliance with the 19 requirements and have a Performance Improvement plan in place BEFORE HRSA reviews your organization.
FQHCmd has developed the IOP program to help health centers meet these requirements.
Do you have an upcoming HRSA Operational Review or need a confidential review of your clinic's operational and financial environments?
