What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

TXACC and its members share a common mission of addressing the needs of the uninsured by using the generosity of our communities as a base for our operations. With one in five Texans uninsured, the presence of TXACC clinics in our communities is vital. Together our member clinics provided over 400,000 patient visits a year. As part of the health care safety net, charitable clinics are an alternative to patients seeking care at local hospitals and emergency departments. Without the existence of these clinics, patients would flood community health center programs already at capacity, use emergency rooms for primary care or simply go without healthcare. TXACC is the only organization in the state of Texas that specifically serves Charitable Clinics. The provision of TXACC services directly strengthens Texas’ healthcare safety net. The ability to have access to timely and appropriate healthcare impacts not only the individual, but the communities where they work and live.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

TXACC is a statewide nonprofit that provides resources, capacity building and advocacy for free and charitable clinics in Texas. TXACC focuses on:
• Promoting access to quality, basic health care services for low income and uninsured Texans
• Providing capacity building for clinic members to create strong organizational structures and provide efficient and
effective
health care services
• Advocating for the development of public policy that benefits clinics and the population they serve


TXACC strives to achieve the following goals:
• Deliver tangible benefits to member clinics, including the provision of quality educational programs, the dissemination of
best practice models, funding opportunities, resource development and sharing, and assist clinics in running cost
effective operations through community and corporate partnerships.
• Demonstrate the value and necessity of charitable clinics as a solution for the provision of healthcare to the underserved
through the collection and distribution of data and metrics.
• Become the common voice for charitable clinics by advocating at local and state levels for policy and legislation that will
benefit the clinics and the patients they serve
• Seek out other charitable clinics in Texas for the purposes of maintaining and expanding a charitable clinic directory and
for inclusion in membership.

Capacity Building: The Texas Association of Charitable clinics, TXACC, provides education, training and technical assistance services for clinics in our network. Included are face-to face activities such as conferences, retreats, regional training programs and on-site consultation from TXACC staff. The goal is to assist member clinics in achieving maximum efficiency and effectiveness.

Resource Development and Connections: TXACC works with organizations with similar missions and/or services that would be beneficial to our membership to create program enhancing services and connections. We negotiate discounts for products and services, send out pertinent healthcare updates and notify membership of grant and funding opportunities. TXACC also works on collaborative projects with the dual purpose of improving care and creating a sense of community among charitable clinics and their leadership.

Advocacy: TXACC acts as the voice for charitable clinics at the local, state and national level. We have worked with small groups of clinics to help them create and refine their public messages about the worth and value of their services and with state legislators to help propose and successfully pass legislation that benefits Texas Charitable clinics. TXACC is in the process of developing a more formal advocacy program which will provide ongoing training and materials so clinics can become more comfortable, and adept, at self-promotion and advocacy.

TXACC is well positioned to oversee the implementation of our above strategies. With a proven track record of success, TXACC is the only organization in the state of Texas specifically supporting Charitable Clinics. TXACC has the expertise and history of successfully delivering services to our members and is setup to coordinate efforts focused on systemic change. Utilizing the state association to coordinate this effort is a cost effect way to increase the scalability and the impact of this program and at the same time freeing Executive Directors from the responsibly of coordinating this for their individual clinics. TXACC has been able to expand our service offerings and will continue do so with available resources.

Highlights of accomplishments in 2018 are as follows:

Awarded the CVS and National Association of Charitable Clinics “Health Champion Award”
Approved for expanded VISTA program placements including short-term summer placements
Funded to begin the first “Quality Collaborative” to work with clinics to implement TXACC standards.
Held successful annual conference and annual leadership retreat
Awarded Innovation Award to member clinic along with $1500 cash prize
Worked with other charitable clinic coalitions around the state to provide education and training
Served on the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics State Representatives Council and Public Policy Committee, AmeriCares Road Map to Health Equity Steering Committee, and on the Austin Center for Nonprofit Studies Advisory Board
Represented and promoted TX Charitable Clinics at the state and national level

In 2019 TXACC's major goal is to continue our work on the implementation of further Quality Collaborative work on a statewide level. Providing a system where clinics can improve upon their own quality assurance issues, and at the same time communicate this to outside stakeholders is critical for promoting charitable clinics as a vital part of the Texas healthcare safety net.
