Community Clinic Case Study: Financial Health

Date published: May, 2011 (19 pages)

In 2007 and 2009, Blue Shield of California Foundation commissioned LFA Group: Learning for Action to conduct surveys and interviews to explore the impact of core support funds on California community clinics. The evaluation findings raised questions about the ways in which several core capacities of community clinics affect access to care and quality of care, and in 2010, the Foundation engaged LFA to conduct research on this topic. This case study on financial health is one of three that focuses on access to and the quality of care in California community clinics.
