WEST PALM BEACH, FL- As one of their Health Center Program awardees, we are delighted to announce that FCHC was recognized by Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) with a Community Health Quality Recognition (CHQR) badge. This badge recognizes achievements in access, quality, health equity, and health information technology for the 2020 Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting period.

CHQR badges include badges health centers will be familiar with as well as new ones to recognize contributions to the COVID-19 pandemic response. This specific badge recognizes centers who tested more than 50% of their 2020 reported UDS patient populations from April 10, 2020 to July 2, 2021 and have a response rate of at least 50% to the weekly Health Center COVID-19 Survey.
 

For more than 55 years, health centers have delivered affordable, accessible, quality, and value-based primary health care to millions of people regardless of their ability to pay. Health centers serve 1 in 11 people across the country, and they lead the nation in driving quality improvement and reducing health care costs for America’s taxpayers. Health centers provide high quality primary care services and support public health priorities such as the opioid crisis, the White House Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative, and the response to COVID-19.

HRSA-funded health centers serve nearly 29 million patients across the country.
