Yuvo Health has developed a platform for Community Health Center (CHC) and Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) partners, enabling them to unlock revenue streams via value-based care without the daunting investment and operating burden. This way, CHCs and FQHCs gain the peace of mind to focus on what they do best - provide quality care to communities in need. In other words, Yuvo aims to remove FQHCs' administrative barriers, so that more people can live their healthiest lives.
