It’s important to continually review and discuss the value, risks, and rewards of your partnership and how it will help both the Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and your organization meet your respective priorities.

Revisit and reinforce commitment to demonstrable value

Continue to revisit your value proposition throughout the life of your partnership to ensure that your collaboration is addressing the needs of the practice and their patients. Call attention to how your efforts in delivering CDSME will reinforce the center’s efforts in operating as a high-performing Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and providing coordinated care.

Obtain support for ongoing delivery and expansion of the program

Keeping the CDSME program funded and expanding it to new service areas not only strengthens trust and value within the partnership, but ultimately ensures the continuity of the program to reach the greatest number of patients. Learn about innovative models in your state that offer opportunities to embed CDSME into FQHC practices.
