Significance: Federally Qualified Health Centers are important safety net providers in rural areas. FQHCs are outpatient clinics that qualify for specific reimbursement systems under Medicare and Medicaid. They include federally-designated Health Center Program awardees, federally-designated Health Center Program look-alikes, and certain outpatient clinics associated with tribal organizations. Approximately 1 in 5 rural residents are served by the Health Center Program, according to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). Health centers provide a comprehensive set of health services including primary care; behavioral health; chronic disease management; preventive care; and other specialty, enabling, and ancillary services, which may include radiology, laboratory, dental, transportation, translation, and social services

Significance:

Data Sources and Data Issues: During development of Delaware’s Plan for Managing the Health Care Needs of Children with Medical Complexity (the Plan), it became evident early in the planning process that there would not be enough time to perform an in-depth analysis of the full continuum of care for children with medical complexity. The data needed to perform a quantitative analysis is very detailed and complex. Therefore, the first recommendation made as a result of the Plan development, was for DMMA to continue working with stakeholders to address the needs of this vulnerable population. As a result, the Children with Medical Complexity Advisory Committee (CMCAC) was developed. This group meets quarterly to strengthen the system of care, increase collaboration across agencies, encourage community involvement, and ultimately ensure that every child with medical complexity has the opportunity to receive the adequate and appropriate health care services they need and deserve.
