Public Policy and Advocacy

OACHC's public policy and advocacy efforts are dedicated to promoting the value of Community Health Centers to Ohio's elected officials, both on the state and federal levels.  OACHC staff work closely with members of Congress, the Ohio General Assembly and other government agencies, including the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the  Health Resources and Services (HRSA), to provide input on legislation and policies of interest to Community Health Centers.

Educational Programs & Professional Development

OACHC provides ongoing professional development and networking opportunities to enhance Community Health Center's ability to respond to the ever-changing health care environment.  OACHC sponsors a variety of programs throughout the year that are designed for all health center staff, and are delivered through two annual conferences with access to expert consultants in the field.  OACHC also offers ongoing web-based programs and various other trainings throughout the year.  We stay on top of the issues affecting you most, so that we can provide timely and appropriate educational sessions.

OACHC has partnered with an organization that hosts an on-line learning room which enables your health center staff to access an on-line library of compliance training and continuing education at a discounted cost for members.

Health Professional Recruitment

OACHC offers assistance with recruitment of key staff members including physicians, dentists, mid-level providers and strategic administrative positions, as well as documentation and support for NHSC and J-1 applications.  OACHC posts career opportunities on its website as well as the National Rural Recruitment and Retention Network (3RNet), exhibits at career fairs and conferences, and visits residency programs throughout the state to assist in the recruitment process.  Equally as important, we provide assistance with retention strategies by providing resources such as webinars, manuals & guides, and sample policies/contracts/job descriptions.
