The League's Clinical Health Affairs Division provides a broad range of support to community health center physicians, nurse practitioners, dentists, behavioral health clinicians and other clinicians, and quality improvement managers as they work to provide the highest quality care to their patients.
Massachusetts community health centers have long been recognized as high performers, both in the health care they provide and the money they save. These health centers ensure that all members of their community have meaningful access to primary care. Providing both access to and coordination of health care for over 1,000,000 state residents, they are deeply invested in finding ways to improve the accessibility, quality, safety and efficiency of primary care.
The Clinical Health Affairs Division:
- manages innovative clinical collaborations that target health disparities and improve patient health
- offers resources and continuous support and training for quality improvement
- lends expertise in areas related to clinical health policy
- creates opportunities for leadership and networking among health center clinicians
Together, the division supports community health centers in their pursuit of community responsive health care, health equity, and social justice.
