The Clinical Programs Director (CPD) at the North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) serves as the state level clinical representative for North Carolina’s Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). This position plans, implements, and coordinates NCCHCA’s activities in support of FQHCs clinical issues in keeping with our mission to “promote and support community-governed health care organizations and the populations they serve.”
The Clinical Programs Director provides technical assistance and arranges trainings for Federally Qualified Health Center providers and clinical support staff to ensure quality of care, improve health status outcomes and reduce health disparities to ensure health centers are well positioned for value-based care. The CPD will develop clear and continuous forms of communication with FQHC providers, relevant federal, state, regional and university partners, and facilitate/maintain collaborative relationships.
The CPD serves as a member of NCCHCA’s Leadership Team, supervises all clinical staff, and ensures that clinical grant deliverables and member needs are met. This position will lead the clinical department staff to ensure excellence in meeting HRSA expectations, while having a strong vision for future clinical business development (ex. fee for service options, care management, team-based care, etc.) in alignment with CEO/Board priorities, while working to increase visibility and recognition of NCCHCA clinical services beyond being a ‘gatekeeper’ to member FQHCs. The Clinical Programs Director will work to integrate a clinical presence in other NCCHCA departments – working across silos and funding.
