Rockford, IL, August 13, 2013 - John Frana, President of theFranaGroup, a prominent healthcare consulting firm based in Rockford Illinois, presented a session about revenue alternatives available to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) at the Michigan Primary Care Association Annual Conference.  Frana outlined information about starting a foundation for fundraising, developing a community health and wellness program and other potential activities to diversify the revenue streams and take advantage of available funding for FQHCs.

 

The focus of Michigan Primary Care Association Annual Conference was to discuss current community health trends and tailoring Health Center services to meet changing community needs. As health reform is implemented through the ACA (Affordable Care Act), it becomes critical for Health Centers to better understand who their patients are and how to reach and/or motivate them in the "new" health care world. Another topic of importance was ways in which Health Centers can align payment methodologies to incentivize value over volume while realizing better financial outcomes.

 

theFranaGroup specializes in supporting FQHCs before, during and after funding and regularly presents best practices at conferences for Health Centers, healthcare administrators and others involved directly in providing for the health of communities around the nation.
