Case Study: Teche Action Clinic’s High Performance
How the Value Transformation Framework Can Advance CDC’s 6|18 Initiative
Teche Action Clinic is a private, not-for-profit federally qualified health center providing comprehensive, safe, quality health care at thirteen locations and a mobile clinic for residents in southeastern Louisiana. Teche Action Clinic was the first community health center in Louisiana to receive accreditation by The Joint Commission (1999) and was certified in 2011 as a Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH).
This clinic’s philosophy is to serve as a caring, culturally competent, community responsive institution where all who seek health services may come. They have proven their success in creating a patient- centered, prevention-focused care delivery system focused on improving quality, improving health outcomes, and reducing costs. Their success can be examined using the National Association of Community Health Center’s (NACHC) Value Transformation Framework.
