Moses Maimonides 12th Century CE Do not allow thirst for profit, ambition for renown and admiration, to interfere with my profession, for these are the enemies of truth and of love for mankind, and they can lead astray in the great task of attending to the welfare of thy creatures.MaimonidesCHCs - OriginCivil Rights / Social Justice MovementRecognition of health disparities and community/public health needsFirst Health Center Mississippi 1965Growth paralleled the emergence of Family Medicine specialtySimilar social drivers and goals: healthcare for all

Service EducationPreserve the strength of my body and of my soul that they ever be ready to cheerfully help and support rich and poor, good and bad, enemy as well as friend. In the sufferer let me see only the human being.Let me be contented in everything except in the great science of my profession. Never allow the thought to arise in me that I have attained to sufficient knowledge for art is great but the mind of man is ever expanding. MaimonidesHealth Centers Have RequirementsServe high need communityHPSA, Medically Underserved Area (MUA) or Medically Underserved Population (MUP)Provision of comprehensive primary & preventive care and enabling services (education, translation, transportation)Services available to all fees based on ability to payGoverned by a consumer majority Board - minimum 51% patients, rest represents community

Why be a Health Center?Serve medically disenfranchisedFederal grant for sliding fee scale offsetCost based Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement340B Drug ProgramFederal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) instead of traditional liability insuranceWhat do patients pay?Medicare the usual coinsurance (options)Medicaid may have copaymentUninsured SFS amount plus labs -- based on income/ FPLIndividual CHC Board input into the SFS

HOW CAN I USE THIS MODELTeaching Health Centers only one modelMany of us taught in CHCs before thisMany opportunities for modelsEHCI provides tools and assistanceRPS consultants have experienceACGME exceptions for CHCPD control over educational activities signed agreement with CHC boardAppointment and assignment of faculty preceptorsAdmit patients and have continuity CHC must have all required areas and staff incuding BH, lab and imaging access. RRC decides if adequateFunding - Diversifies OpportunityService:Sliding Fee Scale grant 330, expansion and service grants, health care for homeless grantsFee for service self pay and private insurance Cost based Medicare and MedicaidFTCA liability insuranceEducation:GME through the hospitals, potentially DME can go to CHC Residency targeted grants: training and equipmentStudent program funding: AHEC, University programsBothTeaching Health Center funding

Residency : Advantages of the CHCA plethora of patientsEndless medical needExperience with resource managementAttract physicians as faculty who understand service in medicineSolid model for rural and frontier careAccess to funding stream for uninsured patient care supportAttraction of residents with the right stuff

The Right StuffMaimonides, 12th century CEMay the love for my art actuate me at all times; may neither avarice nor miserliness, nor thirst for glory or for a great reputation engage my mind; for the enemies of truth and philanthropy could easily deceive me and make me forgetful of my lofty aim of doing goodGrant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements.Teaching Health Centers: thinking strategicallyMike Maples, MDCEOCHCWYakima, WAmike.maples@commhealthcw.orgFor AAFP/RPS: April 3, 2011
