A Stronger Health Safety Net
  • VHCF grants have
  • Helped increase the number of health safety net
    providers in VA
  • Strengthened the health safety
  • Even so, Virginias health safety net is neither
    uniform, nor stable.

11
Challenges faced by Virginias Health Safety Net
  • The safety net varies from community to
    community, depending on
  • Local leadership
  • Number and sophistication of providers
  • Services they offer
  • Number of uninsured in need of assistance, and
  • Resources available.

12
Meeting the Challenges
  • The key to a broad and strong health safety net
    is VHCFs focus on sustainability.
  • A sustainable program is one that has
  • Strong Staff and Board Leadership
  • A Well-Articulated Vision
  • A Solid Operating Plan
  • Broad-based community support
  • Viable revenue generating plan

13
Sustaining the Network
  • Funding Priorities
  • Develop or expand Patient Capacity
  • Establish a Broader Scope of Services
  • Create Local Coordinated Systems of Care
  • Strengthen the Infrastructure of the Health
    Safety Net Providers

14
Results of VHCF Emphasis on Sustainability
  • 89 of VHCF funded projects continue at the same
    or increased capacity for at least three years
    after VHCF funding.
  • In the past eleven years, VHCF projects have
    leveraged more than 38 million in cash, health
    services, and other in-kind contributions
    (excluding donated medications)
