School-Based Health Center (SBHC) Implementation & Sustainability Planning

 

Public Consulting Group (PCG) can support your SBHC initiative through all phases of development and implementation.

State and local government entities face significant challenges when implementing and sustaining successful school-based health centers (SBHCs), which are recognized as an innovative solution to improving access to children’s health services in the community.

 

While the expansion and adoption of SBHC programs and models has increased across the U.S., their role within individual communities continues to evolve, and consequently, the program and policy landscape of SBHCs varies nationwide. State and local agencies must navigate varying standards across program areas such as: operations, funding, service models, business systems and outcome measurement. As a result, developing practical solutions to these challenges (e.g., implementing processes for program evaluation, optimizing Medicaid recovery, developing strategic plans, etc.) is a critical component of promoting the sustainability of your SBHC.
