HRSA's Operational Site Visits (OSVs) are conducted to assess a Federally Qualified Health Center's compliance with the 19 Health Center Program requirements. While these program requirements are critical to a health center's success, they ultimately provide health centers with a foundation on which they can build high-performing, operationally excellent organizations.
This learning lab provides an in-depth look into the HRSA Operational Site Visit. OSV reviewers and a legal expert will offer their perspectives and insights on performance improvement as a result of OSV trends. Each presenter will describe how high-performing health centers prepare and execute the OSV, and how the preparation process provides a strategic opportunity for health centers to strengthen and improve their overall operations. Presenters include a clinical reviewer, fiscal reviewer, governance and administrative reviewer, and legal expert. The presenters will address the four major areas under review during OSVs - services, management and finance, governance, and need - and discuss promising practices observed at high-performing centers. Time will be reserved for table discussions with both the reviewers and peers from other health centers.
