Overview

Self-reported by organization

San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC) was formed in 1982 by a network of community-based health centers. SFCCC develops programs and advocates for policies that increase access to community-based primary care for all San Franciscans, targeting the uninsured and underserved.

Our health clinics provide primary medical care – from geriatric to prenatal - to more than 10% of San Francisco’s population, in up to 20 different languages. Our patients are 53% Asian/Pacific Islander, 21% Latino, 12% White, 7% African-American/Black, 1% Native American, 2% more than on race, and 4% of unknown race/ethnicity. Our clinics are strategically located in the city’s diverse neighborhoods to maximize access for our patient populations.

Our services are: Primary care, including a program that serves patients with diabetes and/or cardiovascular conditions with a regimen of medical care, medications and group support activities; primary care and case management services for patients with HIV/AIDS; primary care services for homeless people through federal funding; Street Outreach Services, a mobile medical clinic that brings medical and social services to homeless clients; Veterinary Street Outreach Services, which engages homeless people in need of health care by providing veterinary services to their pets; and advocating for our patients, clinics, and communities in local, state and national policy and legislative forums.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Current Programs: The Consortium administers one of the largest federal Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) programs in the country. HCH addresses the multiple, acute and chronic health needs of San Francisco's homeless population through the integrated delivery of health care, housing assistance, and social services. Street Outreach Services (SOS), the mobile arm SFCCC's HCH program, transports skilled outreach workers and medical providers to areas where homeless people gather. The SOS team provides primary, preventive and urgent care, as well as case management and health education services. The Consortium manages Ryan White C.A.R.E. Act funds for clinics throughout the city. Patients receive comprehensive HIV medical, counseling, and referral services within their culturally appropriate community -- an innovative, cost-effective alternative to expensive hospital care. Through this program, participating clinics have greatly increased their ability to provide a continuum of care for people who are HIV-positive. In partnership with AmeriCorps SFCCC hosts HealthCorps members who provide health education, outreach, and case management services to our clinics and the communities they serve. The Consortium started Cooperative Solution (CS) a statewide group purchasing (i.e., medical, surgical and office supplies; pharmacy; equipment rental, repair and maintenance; insurance, contracted services) and education program that aims to reduce clinical overhead. As a result revenues are freed that are able to be redirected to patient care. It also aims to educate administrative staff in the principals of materials management. SFCCC has developed a management information system program to enable it to operate more effectively and efficiently.
