Overview & Attendees:
The NACHC 2013 Community Health Institute (CHI) is scheduled to kick off in Chicago as key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) take effect. The vast changes in the health care environment set in motion by ACA implementation raise new issues for Community Health Centers and their patients in all areas of operations – financial, clinical and policy. The NACHC CHI will bring together the most up-to-date information about the transformation now taking shape, and give you the tools to stay strategically competitive in the new Health Insurance Marketplace.
Health centers and SRPCAs will have the opportunity to hear about issues such as:
• Outreach and enrollment
• Patient navigators
• Negotiating contracts with managed care plans and vendors
• Workforce (veterans, succession planning)
• Clinical workforce recruitment and retention
• PCMH recognition and accreditation
• Tele-behavioral Health
• Quality, compliance and sustainability

To address the widespread lack of access to basic health care, Community Health Centers serve over 22 million people at more than 9,000 sites located throughout all 50 states and U.S. territories.
Health centers depend in large part on public financial help and need a unified voice and common source for research, information, training and advocacy.
To address these needs, the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) organized in 1971. NACHC works with a network of state health center and primary care organizations to serve health centers in a variety of ways:
*Category I - Non Profit Public Service & Government Agency
Category II - Non Profit organization promoting revenue-generating product(s) or service(s) (Federal, State or local)
Category III - Commercial Organization or Corporation
