About the Training

One of the most crucial aspects of health center operations is the compensation of its providers. There is no “one size fits all” approach, and health centers are in various degrees of readiness to adopt new programs.  This program is designed for top executives, finance, operations, clinical, and human resources staff – focusing not just on plan design, but assessing the health center’s environment, its objectives in recognizing and rewarding performance, the realistic results a health center can expect to achieve for various approaches, and some of the pre-conditions necessary for success.  Participants will leave with a roadmap for assessing their current programs and designing an approach for the future.
