Optimizing Team Resources: Patient/Provider Scheduling and Panel Size
Health centers continue to devote significant resources to the transition to a team-based model of primary care delivery. This session goes “back to the basics” to take a fresh look at techniques designed to expand capacity, utilizing existing resources within a sustainable structure. From defining target outcomes to simplifying scheduling templates to aligning panel size, the participant will learn a replicable process for moving forward with each of their primary care teams through what is often a contentious and divisive operational imperative.
Prepare Now, Save Later - New Markets Tax Credits Can Save Millions on Your Future Capital Project
Is your health center planning a facilities expansion project of $5 million or more within the next two years? Do you anticipate a need to expand access to integrated care services for behavioral health, substance use disorder, or HIV/AIDS? Did you know that you could subsidize 20-25% of your project costs with New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) funding? With the recently announced one-year extension of the NMTC Program to an historic high of $5 billion,
NOW is the time to get “construction ready”.
This timely webinar will help you determine if NMTC financing could be a good fit for your capital project and the steps needed to prepare to capitalize on this opportunity when the time comes to apply for funding. We will provide a general overview of the NMTC program, the timing of upcoming funding rounds, the process of completing a NMTC transaction and the myriad benefits of doing so. We’ll also review other sources of financing that can be leveraged along with NMTCs.
Developing a Community Health Center Capital Project Plan and Budget – Part One
Before developing a complete capital project budget, health centers need to create a plan that accounts for all aspects of the project and attempts to eliminate unwelcome surprises. This session, the first of a two-part webinar series, will take a broad look at capital project planning activities that allow you to accurately determine the cost of a project so your health center knows how much funding you need to secure. We will discuss how to estimate service area demand, workforce needs, and space requirements so you can build a realistic budget. We will also describe how to calculate your debt capacity and measure financial feasibility.

Preparing Internal Systems for Gathering Cost Data
To assist health center finance and accounting staff in preparing for the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care, The Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net is hosting a webinar training series, Understanding Your Costs in an Evolving Payment Environment, facilitated by Capital Link. Register below for the second webinar in the series, which will provide insight from a former health center CFO into the ways health centers can set up charts of account, practice management systems, and HR/payroll systems to facilitate an accurate understanding of cost.
Developing a Community Health Center Capital Project Plan and Budget – Part Two
Once your health center has developed a capital project plan, you are better able to plan how you are going to pay for your facility expansion or renovation. The second part of a two-part webinar series will dive deeper into how to determine your sources and uses of funds, the elements of a business plan, and an overview of the variety of capital project financing sources available to health centers, including New Markets Tax Credits. This session will also discuss how health centers can use scenario modeling to strategically manage their capital projects in a changing environment.
