The NACHC 2015 Community Health Institute (CHI) is scheduled to kick off in Orlando as key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are being implemented and health centers continue to expand to meet growing demand for primary care services.  The vast changes in the health care environment set in motion by ACA implementation raise new issues for Community Health Centers and their patients in all areas of operations – financial, clinical and policy.
