As part of its “Promotoras Make Cents” study, MHP Salud partnered with four Federally-Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) with CHW programs that targeted specific outcomes: Ampla Health, the Community Health Partnership of Illinois, Whittier Street Primary Care, and Franklin Primary Health Center. Financial data was collected for a period unique to each program. Relevant costs for each program included staff and management salary and benefits (including retirement), outreach supplies, event space rental, communications, mileage and vehicle repair, insurance, promotional expenses, and some training. Outcome data was dependent on program aims, but it included health insurance enrollments and changes in A1C, blood pressure, and weight over time.
