Benefits of Participation

Health care organizations and their communities selected to participate in the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Program receive nearly $250,000 per year in technical assistance to help leaders and providers transition to value-based care and prepare for population health management.

Services provided include:

  • In-depth on-site comprehensive consultations and off-site coaching with subject matter experts over multiple years (up to three years) to support hospitals and clinics with the implementation of best practices and adoption of transition to value-based care strategies to position the organization and community for population health. On-site consultations target financial, operational and quality improvement, transitions of care, revenue cycle management, physician practice management, and telehealth services.
  • Resources to support the development and implementation of telehealth services, which include funding for equipment, hardware, software, and training.
  • Assessments and feasibility studies as deemed necessary based on need, as well as direct hands-on technical support for the implementation of recommendations.
  • Peer-to-peer education opportunities — regional summits, learning collaboratives, and off-site and virtual bootcamps — are designed to build internal capacity to support sustainability and promote secondary gains.
  • One-on-one assistance in developing a community care coordination (CCC) plan to assist leaders in creating a local continuum of care. A CCC plan is critical in building a local infrastructure for managing population health care services in the future. Funding is provided to support a community champion to assist leadership in developing the CCC plan and helping to promote effective communications.
