How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

All aspects of our education and training programs have provided opportunities for free and charitable clinics' staff, board, and volunteers to learn about best practices, new programs and resources, and network with their peers. This has strengthened the clinics ability to provide quality healthcare in a cost efficient manner.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our goal is to continue to support and strengthen free and charitable clinics that are operating in Pennsylvania and continue to advocate for their healthcare delivery models with policy makers and funders.

    These clinics are critical to the safety net system in Pennsylvania and many times operate under the radar screen of policy makers or funders; or, are confused with other models such as federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), FQHC look-a-likes, hospital based or rural clinics. Free and charitable clinics operate primarily due to the generosity of local philanthropy in their communities and receive no federal funding and do not accept insurance payments.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We are expanding our educational and training opportunities and the venues within which they are offered.
    We are increasing the benefits of memberships in FCAP.
    We are developing performance measurement standards which will allow clinics (for the first time) to be able to report outcomes in a unified fashion statewide. This is something the clinics, policy makers, and funders have been looking for.
    We are continually meeting with policy makers and legislators to update them as to the free and charitable clinic model and give them a picture of the patients that are receiving care at these clinics.
    We are working with legislators to secure legislation and/or policy change that will positively impact free and charitable clinics (financially or operationally).
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The FCAP's Executive Director has more than 40+ years of administrative experience in health care and has relationships with local legislators and policy makers.
    The FCAP eleven member Board represents clinics from various geographic areas across PA; each having extensive experience (administrative and clinical) in the free clinic model.
    Our FCAP members are an integral part of our Association and bring a vast array of experiences and knowledge to our programs.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Increased education and training opportunities will be provided on relevant topics.
    Numbers of participants in these education and training opportunities.
    Changes in legislation and/or policy that positively impacts free and charitable clinics.
    Roll out and adoption of performance measurement standards by all free and charitable clinics across the State.
    Increased membership in FCAP.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have held successful annual conferences, regional meetings and webinars; and, are disseminating informational updates to clinics via email and our website.

    We are currently working with a local legislator to develop legislation that would give sovereign immunity to free and charitable clinics.

    We have just began the initiative to establish program measurement standards.
