Capital Link announces the release of an updated statewide financial and operational profile of California health centers. This resource, sponsored by Blue Shield of California Foundation, presents multi-year trends as well as comparative data for health centers nationally, offering a framework for identifying the financial strengths, challenges, and benchmarks that support opportunities for performance improvement.

Covering the four-year period of 2013 to 2016, this analysis focuses on the following trends for California Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and FQHC Look-Alikes (LALs):

  • Growth and expansion of the patient population and service provision
  • Financial performance as shown by revenue growth and operating margins
  • Financial health as measured by liquidity and revenue collections 
  • Operational measures such as patient utilization and practice mix
  • Productivity metrics and quality of care indicators
