Rock River Health Care Network partners collaborate to bring strategies and programs to our region that increase the health equity in Jefferson and Dodge Counties in Wisconsin.
This subcommittee was formed to evaluate the current need of behavioral health services in the community. They completed a survey of area behavioral health provider services currently provided. Gaps were identified and a strategic plan involving the refer-contract-employ model was adopted.
This subcommittee was formed to further understand the impact of the social determinants of health on the target population. Their work will include developing referral patterns for chronic disease management, behavioral health and safety net services. They will evaluate and monitor results of the utilization of a best-practice common screening tool (the PRAPARE) and determine further dissemination of the tool. Finally, their work will inform the Steering Committee as to next steps in achieving health equity in our communities.
Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Status
The Rock River Community Clinic (RRCC) is in the process of applying to receive FQHC Look-Alike Status. The lengthy application process includes an exhaustive application that describes the target population in a 16 zip code area. It fully describes the staffing, costs, operational processes and governance of the RRCC. In addition to an application, a site-visit evaluation is required. If FQHC status is obtained, the RRCC will be reimbursed by the Federal government for a percentage of the costs incurred and will allow the clinic to serve the low-income, uninsured and under-insured populations.
