While always important, strategic planning has recently become an organizational imperative for health centers as they seek to successfully navigate uncharted territory. The health care industry is experiencing rapid change brought on by demographic shifts, economic influences, policy changes, and bureaucratic adjustments. These changes are especially significant for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) because of their significant reliance on government programs for reimbursement.
This session - led by a health center CEO - will provide a concrete, how-to guide for organizations beginning or refining their strategic planning process. Part 2: An Introduction to a Dynamic Toolkit for Health Centers (PThG2) will serve as a continuation of this topic and provide an overview of a strategic planning toolkit.
