Day 1: December 10, 2015
9:00am - 12:00pm with Alex Lehr O'Connell: Beyond UDS - New Public Housing Requirements for FQHCs, and Growth Opportunities through Partnership
In February 2015, all Federally Qualified Health Centers were required to include a count of the number of public housing residents they serve in their UDS report. This includes all FQHC grantees and Look-Alikes, not just those funded by the Public Housing Primary Care program. As FQHCs prepare for their 2015 UDS report submission, and plan for future growth, a prime opportunity exists to partner with local housing organizations not only to ensure compliance with the new reporting requirement, but also assess potential to leverage additional resources to serve new markets.
12:00pm - 1:00pm: Lunch is on your own
1:00pm - 4:00pm with Jennifer Rankin: The Complete UDS Mapper
