The Indiana Primary Health Care Association's By-Laws designate the following standing committees: Finance, Health Policy, Membership, Nominating, and Personnel.

The Finance Committee's duties are to review the finances of the organization and make appropriate financial reports to the Association; determine policies related to monies; make recommendations to the Board of Directors; review sources of funds; recommend guidelines; and review / recommend the annual budget for the Association, to be approved by the IPHCA Board of Directors and ratified by the General Assembly.

The Health Policy Committee monitors and reviews major policies and anticipated or desirable actions of state or local government, including the Indiana General Assembly, related to the delivery of primary health care services in Indiana. The committee submits its recommendations on public issues of health care organizations, delivery, financing, and medical research to the Executive Committee and IPHCA Board of Directors for adoption of a public policy position by the Association.

The Membership Committee is responsible for promoting Association membership, making recommendations to the Board of Directors concerning all applications for membership, and maintaining a current roster of members in good standing. This committee credentials representatives to any General Assembly meeting.

Annually prior to the General Assembly, the Nominating Committee selects a slate of candidates for membership on the Board of Directors and for Officers of the Association. The slate of nominees for Board membership and Officers is delivered to the membership with the notice of the General Assembly and is made available for review by the voting membership at the General Assembly.

The Personnel Committee's duties are to review the personnel policies of the organization and make appropriate personnel reports to the Association, to determine policies related to personnel, and to make recommendations to the IPHCA Board of Directors.

The Health Center Controlled Network Committee is responsible for planning, implementing and developing strategies for meaningful use of the health information technology, data quality and reporting, health information exchange, and population health management of participating health centers to improve the quality of care delivered to their patients.
