These resources highlight innovative practices that health centers have adopted, resulting in improved operational performance and outcomes in areas like HIT/Data, quality improvement, practice transformation, workforce, addressing social determinants of health, and more. These promising practices are drawn from the Clearinghouse database. These field-generated practices have been self-identified by the authoring/submitting organization and adhere to at least three of the criteria listed below.
A field-generated promising practice should demonstrate at least three of the following:
- Impact/Outcomes: The practice has been used successfully by at least one organization and has an emerging, positive track record of improved clinical, operational, or financial (cost) outcomes, as measured by PSDA or other quality improvement mechanism.
- Satisfaction: The practice demonstrates improved patient or staff satisfaction as measured by a satisfaction survey/tool.
- Data Collection mechanism: The practice includes a way to track initial data to support the establishment of benchmarks or represents a new method of collecting data, achieving outcomes, or analyzing data that improves health center benchmarks and measurements.
- Partnerships: The practice uses or creates innovative, strong partnerships that maximize efficiency, as measured by tracking health center efficiency from increased funding or increased visits, improved clinical outcomes, or similar measure.
- Operational Feasibility: The practice has the potential/ability to be implemented, shared, replicated, and/or scaled beyond the initial implementation.
