Capital Link’s Learning Collaboratives are designed to help increase the capacity of health centers in a peer-to-peer learning format. Conducted through a series of webinars and virtual discussions facilitated by Capital Link, our Collaboratives are offered free of charge to approved health center applicants with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Planning and Financing a Capital Project to Accommodate Integrated Care Learning Collaborative
The fourth offering of this collaborative was held in early 2021 and provided practical direction and tools for capital project planning, financing, and completing for health centers that anticipate the need for a project in the next one to five years. It also highlight key planning considerations related to the Patient-Centered Medical Home model of team-based, integrated care. We are planning to offer this Collaborative again in early 2022.
This Learning Collaborative will serve as a forum for health centers interested in financing a capital project through the Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program from HRSA. We will soon be accepting applications for this Collaborative, which will be conducted between October and December 2021. LEARN MORE >
Sustaining and Increasing Access to Care in Rural Communities Learning Collaborative
Held earlier this year, this Collaborative, offered by Capital Link and NACHC, explored community needs, growth planning, and financing options for accepted health centers applicants serving rural communities. It addressed challenges and opportunities facing FQHCs in communities experiencing hospital distress and closure; examined the impact of telehealth on care delivery; and addressed financial capacity, sustainability, facility planning and financing options for FQHCs seeking to expand their impact in rural America. Another offering of this Collaborative is being planned for early 2022.
