Background and Discussion:

Harris County Public Health desires to strengthen its community impact and sharpen its focus through an aligned strategic planning process. The Harris County Public Health strategic plan will focus on goals for the community it serves and organizational goals that meet national best practices and address immediate or emerging needs through coordinated care.

 

Health Management Associates has extensive direct experience working with public health agencies, counties, and safety net organizations and their previous work in Harris County and with Harris Health system lends insight into understanding the needs of Harris County residents and the importance of coordinated quality care.

 

Expected Impact:

Through the use of the following workstreams:

                     Workstream 1: Harris County Public Health Rapid Assessment and Gap Analysis

                     Workstream 2: Key Stakeholder Input, Outreach, and Engagement

                     Workstream 3: Revenue Maximization

                     Workstream 4: Strategic Plan and Implementation Strategy

 

HMA is expected to develop and deliver a complete and robust strategic and implementation plan for Harris County Public Health that results in tangible, practical outcomes and reflects a new vision of collaborative work across the healthcare ecosystem.

 

Alternative Options:

Alternative options would be to not execute this agreement and have Harris County Public Health create their own strategic plan. Harris County Public Health does not currently have the capacity nor resources to create a thorough strategic and implementation plan to meet community need.
