What is the composition of your health center workforce? Does your health center have contractors, employees, volunteers, referrals, and/or subrecipients? How does the issue of worker classification affect your organization’s compliance requirements with HRSA (its provision of services), the FTCA, and other federal, state and local laws? What are the possible consequences for making a classification error (e.g., findings of non-compliance, back pay, criminal penalties, and punitive damages)? What steps should your health center take to limit the potential liability that may arise from misclassifying its workforce? If your health center wrestles with these issues, then this session is for you! As with other government agencies (e.g., the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Labor), HRSA has increased its focus on health center workforce classifications. With this increased focus, health centers should be mindful of key aspects of each classification and understand their key distinctions (e.g., access to Section 330 benefits). In this session, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP will walk you through how these classifications affect your health center. And, we will explore best practices for avoiding common misclassification pitfalls, so your health center can proactively mitigate costly errors by incorporating those strategies into its operations.

Objectives:
  • Identify and understand the legal issues that pertain to health centers who utilize volunteers, contractors, referrals, and subrecipients.
  • Understand the best practices that health centers can adopt to satisfy their compliance obligations under federal and state laws.
  • Understand how the classification of your health center’s workforce interacts with key HRSA requirements as set forth in the Compliance Manual and Site Visit Protocol and best practices that can be used to maintain everyday compliance and success.

A health center's development or fundraising team could be the lifeblood to bring necessary financial resources to the health center, including federal grants, nurturing private foundation relationships, identifying individual donors, and managing capital campaigns. Building a strong relationship with clear lines of communication and understanding between the C-Suite and the development team is essential to every health center's success. The C-Suite will communicate the vision and primary goals of the organization, as set forth by the board of directors, while the development team's funding and partnership approach should directly support those efforts. Hear from panelists on their experiences of building strong relationships among these teams. Also take part in an interactive discussion on what may be working and/or where there could be room for improvement in your own organization. It is encouraged that staff from the development team and the C-Suite attend this session together, in addition to encouraging board member attendance because there may be parallel tracks to strengthening the role of the board in fundraising from this session.

Low end estimates of post-COVID conditions have noted one in 10 COVID-19 patients are likely to develop a post-COVID condition (PCC) or “long COVID”. According to the CDC, PCC have many manifestations and can last, weeks, months, or maybe even years. Symptom profiles vary from patient to patient and may include fatigue, brain fog, chronic shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, palpitations and many other physical ailments, but none is alone diagnostic for the syndrome. It is unclear if PCC represents multiple separate or overlapping syndromes and there is confusion amongst clinicians about when to diagnose. Unfortunately, there are not evidence-based treatments established or widely available for PCC, although there is emerging evidence in this area. This session will hear from committed health center clinicians caring for these complex vulnerable patients in health centers as well as patients who are experiencing Long COVID. The recent emergence of Monkeypox infections (MPX) around the US will also be covered at the start of the session.

In a current environment where misinformation spreads faster than truth, health centers and NACHC need to get on offense, when it comes to information about COVID-19, to protect vulnerable patients who can sometimes be used as political pawns in social, safety-net, and immigration debates; and to build a resilient wall of information against naysayers who may criticize health centers falsely as second-rate care. Building the capacity and the revenue support for health centers, beyond their HRSA grant and existing patient revenues, is essential at this moment in time. Health centers are approached by and engaging with more and more corporations daily. This may be through local grocery stores or as beneficiaries of national grants as part of a corporate giving strategy. These partnerships also bring levels of engagement on communications, marketing the relationship, and engaging with employees -- all new experiences for some health centers. Telling the health center story helps to spread the word about the many ways chcs impact the provision of quality health care in this country and, as a result, can also increase opportunities for new partnerships and funding. This workshop is ideal for leaders, staff, and board members focused on communications, development, and marketing. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with other participants about their own plans to boost partnership engagement efforts with corporations.

Objectives:
  • Engage with panelists and peers on their own partnership engagement communication plan.
  • Increase knowledge of communications, marketing, and staff engagement for partnerships and corporate giving beneficiaries.
  • Feel prepared to apply lessons learned in the session to their health center’s partner engagement efforts.
