+ 4 Clinical Questions 1. Patients: How will volume and acuity change? What additional services are needed beyond your walls? 2. Access: How quickly can patients be seen? 3. Teams: How do clinical/non-clinical staff communicate & collaborate? Outreach team? 4. Needs: How are the health needs of homeless populations being communicated to policymakers?
+ 5 Administrative Questions 1. Billing: Is it maximized, do systems need to be upgraded, do staff need to be (re)trained? 2. Filling gaps: What other services/resources are needed, and how are these needs being communicated to state policymakers? 3. Managed care: How will a transition from block grants impact service delivery/staffing? 4. Additional personnel: How can you increase clinical & support staff (e. g. , case managers, outreach workers, billing specialists, etc. )? 5. Technical Assistance: Are you reaching out to your PCA and/or the National HCH Council if needed?
