Community health centers are at the forefront of the provision of comprehensive and quality health care services to underserved populations.  To maintain their quality of care, health centers set clinical goals to monitor the health outcomes of their patients, as well as to assess the impact of their services.  Further, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has put forth Clinical Performance Measure for HRSA-funded health centers to ensure that they are meeting their goal of offering quality care to their patients.  These performace measures are quality-related and selected to provide a balanced and comprehensive representation of health center services, clinically prevalent conditions among underserved communities, and the population across life cycles.

Outreach programs can be integral in helping health centers achieve their clinical goals.  Well-trained outreach and eligibility staff can earn trust in ways institions often cannot.  They frequently possess language and cultural links to the populations they serve and have a clear understanding of the barriers underserved communities face in accessing health care.  Outreach teams can enhance and expand clinical care by esablishing on-going relationships with communities, providing outreach-based health education and case management, assisting with care coordination, and coordinating and assisting with clinical outreach.  Outreach can even help to improve clinical efficiency by decreasing no-show rates and, as appropriate, expanding provider reach and capability to optimally care for patients.
