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.
The health centers that comprise Community Health Best Practices, LLC have a significant impact on the communities we serve. Not only are our safety net health care and social service programs vital to our patients and clients, but we are a major economic driver in many urban, rural and frontier communities throughout the United States.

The Keys to Quality (K2Q) HCCN consists of 12 participating health centers serving a large, diverse, low-income population. In many ways, this diverse network of PHC members is reflective of the HRSA Bureau of Primary Care Health Center Program as a whole. PHCs hail from several states, make use of multiple EHR platforms, and serve primarily low-income populations, often including special populations. Unique aspects of PHC membership include co-applicant status, academic health centers, and nurse-led health centers. The K2Q HCCN is administered by the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium. The mission of the K2Q HCCN is to strengthen the health IT and quality improvement capacity of participating health centers through individualized and peer technical assistance and internal capacity building.
