Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are nonprofit community-based healthcare organizations that care for medically underserved populations. Cornerstones of the ongoing effort to expand access to primary care, such health centers operate some 11,000 delivery sites across the country, providing a wide range of services to more than 27 million people annually — about 1 in 12 Americans. FQHCs also are key to reducing the overall cost burden of healthcare. Yet these vital institutions are challenged to raise productivity, expand patient access, and sustain provider morale. The most direct route to reaching these vital goals is smart scheduling — proactively managing the supply of appointments and use of provider time, with the aid of powerful data analytics. Kairoi Health has just published a white paper by CEO John Golenski, which shares our deep perspective on this topic. See FQHCs: Fine-tune Scheduling to Raise Productivity and Improve Patient Access.
