Strategic Planning: A Realistic Approach During Rapid and Significant Change (PThE2)
Thursday, March 28, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Thurgood Marshall East
Presenters: Jonathan Chapman, Director of Community Health Center Advisory Services, Capital Link; Gary Campbell, Chief Executive Officer, Johnson Health Center

As health care evolves due to rapid changes in technology, demographics, reimbursement, and policy, community health centers have increasing expectations in collaborations, operations, and of course improving patient outcomes and care. In order to reasonably consider and respond to all these opportunities and responsibilities, adequate time and resources for strategic planning may not appear to be available or a priority. Led by a health center CEO and HRSA National Cooperative Agreement Partner, this session will share not only the significance and benefit of planning but also provide realistic tools and experiences for all health centers considering, beginning, or refining their strategic planning process.

Need Training Resources? We’ve Got You Covered (T3-4)

Presenters: Allison Coleman, Chief Executive Officer, Capital Link; Kristine Gonnella, Director, Training and Technical Assistance, National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (a PHMC Affiliate); Ted Henson, Director, Health Center Performance and Innovation, NACHC

Did you know that there is a national online clearinghouse for all training and technical assistance resources available to health centers? National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) organizations have developed a clearinghouse of training and technical assistance resources to support and enhance health center operational performance. The Health Center Resource Clearinghouse provides a one-stop shop for publications, webinars, and toolkits to promote health center excellence. Join NACHC staff and our partner NCA organizations for a demo of the newly launched site and dialogue about opportunities for further enhancements.

At this session, you will learn how to prepare for and apply to the program, as well as how to access available technical assistance resources to assist with the planning and application process.
