Delivery team will be led by former nurse and hospital administrator
Each month, experts from the Public Health Foundation (PHF)
are in the field working with health departments and hear feedback about pressing needs for technical assistance and training. Recent comments from state nursing directors, public health nurses, and directors from programs including family planning; sexually transmitted diseases; and women, infants and children indicate that now is a critical time to make the most effective and efficient use of health department clinical programs’ limited, and often shrinking, resources. This includes core funds and grants that increasingly require the use of quality improvement (QI) methods and tools.
PHF’s experienced team, led by former nursing director Annie Vosel BSN, RN
, and former hospital administrator and Senior Quality Advisor Jack Moran, PhD
, have developed two new customized QI services to help your program maximize use of the limited dollars you receive
. These services will help your clinical programs use QI methods and tools to improve efficiency and customer service, and meet ever-changing grant requirements. In addition, our experts will teach staff proven public health QI practices to address both current and future program needs.
New services include:
What will be achieved?
- Program improvements that you determine are priorities to address
- Refined metrics to address program performance
- Staff buy-in and participation in QI with access to the tools that they need
- Maximized use of your data, to be able to react and respond quickly to trends
- Opportunity for diversified funding sources
- Alignment with regulatory and grant requirements, and national public health accreditation standards
