Health centers have a critical role in patient and community education, outreach, and health navigation/coordination. There are a multitude of current and upcoming opportunities for health centers to expand or enhance services providing community-based linkages. Michigan health center staff have the knowledge and skills needed to help patients and communities address barriers and social determinants of health. Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA), in turn, assists health center staff through technical assistance, training, peer communication network facilitation, resource development, and best practices sharing.

Health Outreach Partners: The Outreach Business Value Toolkit


On February 12, 2018, Health Outreach Partners (HOP) discussed their strategic framework and corresponding toolkit aimed at assisting health center administrators in determining the business value of an integrated community health outreach program and in assessing the potential financial impact of sustained investments in outreach. The Outreach Business Value (OBV) Toolkit is to help health center leadership assess the financial return for investing in comprehensive community health outreach programs. It includes ROI calculators that allow for organizations to enter their own data and see what the potential financial benefit of their outreach programs may be. It's customizable and can be used in planning and making projections, as well as an tool to advocate for the importance of outreach.” You can now access the webinar recording and a pdf of the slides.
