The NACHC Community Health Institute (CHI) and Expo is the largest annual gathering of health center clinicians, executives, consumer board members along with Health Center Controlled Networks and Sate/Regional Primary Care Associations. The conference (August 27–29, 2017) is scheduled to kick off in San Diego at a time when health centers are front and center in the transformation of healthcare. Health center leaders are looking to the future focused on the medical and management teams needed for tomorrow’s healthcare – the collaborative partnerships that can spur innovations – and the technologies to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness in the delivery of care. They also will focus on approaching change and the impact of new payment systems and models of care. The CHI will position health centers for sustained leadership in the coming years. Participants will hear NACHC leadership, government officials, healthcare industry leaders and other special guests speak to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, including up-do-date information on policy shifts, federal regulatory changes, funding and proposed legislation. The national conference will foster opportunities for health center professionals and consumer board members to network, share perspectives and best practices, and stay competitive and relevant in the healthcare marketplace. A host of educational sessions and events will be offered on major topics relevant to the operations and governance of health centers.
