Program to strengthen the capacity of the Service to provide health care
The Foundation's Supplemental Service Grant Support Program, was designed to help ensure that nonprofit primary care services projects that were former grantees be able to sustain their service capacity to provide essential health and medical services in a period of diminished public funding.This Supplemental Service Grant helps underwrite five main components of its plan to improve its ability to function with greater proficiency and economy: (1) appointment of a coordinator to strengthen management oversight of the FNS dispersed clinic network; (2) technical assistance in instituting modern electronic communications and data handling systems through the service sites; (3) improvement of its capacity to recruit and hold clinical staff for rural service through formal clinical rotations for medical and nurse practitioner students; (4) technical assistance on management and operational measures to improve staff productivity; and (5) technical assistance to develop an organized service marketing program throughout the FNS service area.
