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 State/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 health care. Health center leaders are looking to the future focused on the medical and management teams needed for tomorrow’s health care – 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, health care 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 health care marketplace. A host of educational sessions and events will be offered on major topics relevant to the operations and governance of health centers.
NACHC is constantly updating the CHI list with education sessions and dynamic speakers who present a fresh focus on what is happening now in health care. Keep checking back to this page and find out the latest developments on the 2017 NACHC CHI in San Diego.
