COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Implementation Toolkit (2021).
This is a toolkit for decision-makers and implementers of vaccine clinics. Our goal was to create a “vaccination clinic in a box” that could be replicated in, and tailored to, many types of settings. The guide includes prompts for questions you may need to ask, examples of many types of documents that you may need (and information about where to find more documentation), and lessons-learned from our experience.
Developing Cross-Sector Partnerships (2020).
This guide provides health center staff with tools and strategies to initiate, develop, and sustain community partnerships to better serve older adult residents of public housing. Content of this publication was developed through a 4-session learning collaborative launched by the SDOH academy with a small cohort of HRSA-funded health centers, HCCNs, and PCAs.
Patient Centered Health Home: Digital Story (2016).
This digital story is a great resource for use by outreach staff to inform the community about the unique features of a Patient Centered Health Home. Through this video, and through the story of Mr. Mendoza, patients learn what they might experience in a health home before, during, and after a visit.
Systems Orientation for Clinical Leaders (eLearning) (2019).
This eLearning module discusses the importance of systems orientation as part of a clinical leader's core competency development. Real-life examples and case scenarios are used to focus on enhancing a clinical leader's ability to:
Utilize both "big picture" and detailed "systems thinking" when analyzing issues and making decisions;
Align clinical, tactical operations with the health center's mission, vision, and values;
Manage change among the clinical staff as the health center moves into new care models (e.g., Patient Centered Medical Home model);
Actively work to integrate Public/Population Health issues with routine delivery of primary care.
Helping Kids Get At-Home Care (2018).
What would you do if your one-year old child depended on a ventilator to breathe, and the home nursing care needed to monitor it wasn’t available? Would you keep your child in the hospital indefinitely? Would you quit your job to be home with your child, and stay up all night to make sure they didn’t stop breathing? Would you put them in a long-term nursing facility 80 miles away where they’d have the care they needed, but where you wouldn’t see them for days at a time? In 2015, for several parents in Washington State, the heartbreaking answer to all these questions was yes.
Outreach and Value-Based Care (2017).
HOP’s new resource Outreach & Value-Based Care: Impacting Health Care Delivery and Cost through Integrated Community Health Outreach Programs, describes how health centers can use their outreach teams to enhance value under service delivery models such as Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) and Accountable Care Organizations. It offers examples of how outreach programs can enhance revenues from alternative payment models such as shared savings, pay-for-performance, and PCMH supplemental payments. The resource is a complement to HOP’s Outreach Business Value Toolkit.
Optimizing Team Resources: Patient/Provider Scheduling and Panel Size (2018).
Health centers continue to devote significant resources to the transition to a team-based model of primary care delivery. This session goes "back to basics" to take a fresh look at techniques designed to expand capacity, utilizing existing resources within a sustainable structure. From defining target outcomes to simplifying scheduling templates to aligning panel size, participants will learn a replicable process for moving forward with each of their primary care teams through what is often a divisive operational imperative.
Enabling Services at Community Health Centers (2010).
This report introduces the important role enabling services (ES) play in the delivery of high quality care for medically underserved Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs). It details the high utilization of such services and the impact they have on patients' health outcomes. It concludes with recommendations for establishing a nationally recognized standard for ES data collection and utilization, integrating ES into the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model, and funding to sustain and ensure quality services.
Advancing Health Care Through Care Coordination (2017).
Care coordination emphasizes collaboration between providers to increase quality of care and ultimately improve patient outcomes. In addition, this model can help reduce the overall cost of care by reducing medication errors, repetitive tests, and prevent hospital admissions. During this webinar, panelists share information about their care coordination efforts and offer important considerations for health centers hoping to start, improve, or expand care coordination programs.
