No. In order to continue to receive HRSA funding, FQHCs and FQHC Look-Alikes must be in compliance with the program requirements which are outlined within the Health Center Program Compliance Manual and the Site Visit Protocol. The HRSA program requirements are the foundation on which a health center can build upon. This does not mean that a health center cannot strive to move past the foundation (continuous compliance with the HRSA program requirements) and adopt practices that are considered industry best practices. Industry best practices are normally standards/clinical practices that fall within the upper quartile in the healthcare industry.
