All Board Members on Deck: Using the Strategic Planning Toolkit to Chart Your Health Center’s Path to Success (PFK1)
Friday, March 31, 8:00 – 9:30 AM, Washington 4-6
Presenter: Jonathan Chapman, Director of Community Health Center Advisory Services, Capital Link

Strategic planning is one of the most important activities of health center boards. Along with health center leadership and staff, the board engages in strategic planning to best position the health center to not just survive, but to thrive. We are now experiencing the greatest time of change for healthcare delivery. Health centers must be able to anticipate possible changes, assess implications of change, and develop an action plan to minimize negative impacts and maximize potential opportunities. With this reality facing all of us, NACHC and Capital Link developed a toolkit that health centers can use to guide them through their strategic planning process. This session will present a high-level overview of toolkit use to address: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? How will we get there?

Understanding What Metrics Tell You (PSaK1)
Saturday, April 1, 8:30-10:00 AM, Washington 4-6
Presenter: Jonathan Chapman, Director of Community Health Center Advisory Services, Capital Link

In this session, health center board members will learn how to assess their health center’s financial and operational performance using benchmarking and comparative metrics from Capital Link’s audited financial database and data from the federal reporting system. Presenters will discuss the difference between calculating outputs and measuring outcomes and will address the value of metrics to achieve the board’s oversight responsibilities of monitoring their health center’s administrative, financial, and clinical operations. Participants will learn how to use metrics to compare their health center’s performance with other health centers, and to use that information to enhance their organization’s financial and clinical success.
