The health care industry is experiencing rapid change brought on by demographic shifts, economic influences, policy changes, and mandated system adjustments. These changes are especially significant for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) because of their significant reliance on government programs for reimbursement. While always important, strategic planning has recently become an organizational imperative for health centers as they seek to successfully navigate uncharted territory.
Creating a Dynamic and Useful Strategic Plan, an interactive resource developed by Capital Link and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), provides health centers with a toolkit to create and maintain a useful strategic plan. Organized into five sections, it begins with tools for health centers to examine and reaffirm their mission and purpose and then provides a pathway to generate well-informed expectations, measurable organizational objectives, and definitive steps to attain goals. Finally, it offers tools to distill this information into the critical actions health centers need to manage strategically and achieve sustainability. This toolkit was supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
