- Full Report:
GAO was asked for information relating to the Health Development Corporation (HDC). The objectives of the review were to determine whether community and migrant health centers were complying with certain legislative requirements and to assess the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) management and administrative practices relating to community and migrant health center programs.
Because of the limited scope of its work, GAO could not determine the overall effectiveness and efficiency of the HDC project. However, it appeared that HDC was generally managing its clinics well, complying with applicable HHS regulations and requirements, and moving toward its stated objective of increasing the number of primary care physicians and dentists in practice to meet the needs of the underserved rural areas of west central Alabama.
