New, Updated Resources on Community Health Centers
The Kaiser Family Foundation has issued three new resources that examine the role of community health centers as key components of the U.S. health care system, providing primary care to more than 16 million patients nationwide in 2007.
The documents, produced for the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, include a fact sheet on community health centers, an updated issue brief on their role in the health system and a report on how such centers fared in the wake of health reform in Massachusetts.
