Brief History & Purpose

Community Health Best Practices, LLC is a nonprofit network comprised of fifteen of the nation’s leading community health centers.  Our Members operate federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) in Oregon, Washington, Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Hawaii, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico, and they provide comprehensive primary care and behavioral health services to all patients regardless of the patients’ ability to pay for such services.  Our Member’s health centers annually provide care to more than 1 million individuals and perform approximately 5 million medical, dental and behavioral health encounters, a large percentage of which involve uninsured or underinsured patients.

Community Health Best Practices, LLC was formed for the purpose of supporting the nonprofit and community-focused missions of our Member organizations.  The LLC carries out this purpose by:

  • Procuring grant funds and donations to further the nonprofit missions of the LLC’s member health centers;
  • Developing and implementing collaborative purchasing programs designed to leverage the combined size and purchasing power of the LLC’s Members in order to obtain favorable product and service pricing; and
  • Seeking support for educational programs and activities designed to perpetuate evidence-based operational and clinical “best practices” within our Member’s health centers. 

Community Health Best Practices, LLC is a health center controlled network (HCCN) actively pursuing opportunities to develop a health information technology platform that will enable our health centers to optimize health outcomes for their patients while simultaneously enhancing our Members’ ability to control costs and enhance operational efficiency
