The Delta Region Community Health Systems Development (DRCHSD) Program provides selected health  care organizations with comprehensive, in-depth technical assistance consultation services with the goal to successfully position hospitals and clinics, and their communities, for the future. Consultations areas include:

Participating organizations receive assessments in the following areas:

  • Financial and Operational Assessment (FOA)
  • Quality Improvement (QI) Project
  • Telehealth Assessment
  • Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Assessment
  • Physician Practice Management (PPM) Assessment
  • Workforce and Leadership Development (WLD)
  • Implementation Technical Assistance (ITA)

Consultation services are delivered through the DRCHSD Program’s three-year participation cycle to support leaders with building on post-project gains and raising the organization’s knowledge base. 

Year 1 focuses on initial assessments for planning and development of performance improvement action plans

Year 2 targets implementation of best practice recommendations and adoption of evidence-based models

Year 3 consists of reassessments and modifications of action plans to provide leaders a roadmap for future next steps 

This comprehensive approach strengthens the organization’s ability to benefit from value-based care initiatives and prepares them for population health by establishing a foundation for sustaining gains year over year.  Program staff guides leaders through the consultation process and provides Implementation Technical Assistance (ITA) services to assist organizations with successful implementing best practices that improve financial performance, operational efficiencies and quality care. ITA services may be requested to support execution of action plans, implementation of best practices and adoption of evidence-based models following the completion of assessments .
