“Are You Ready?” Essential Preparation Activities to Move Your Capital Project Ahead
Is your health center considering building new facilities, renovating existing space, or purchasing new equipment? Proactive organizations set goals early and plan for the future carefully, achieving the wonderful by-product of being ready to build should a funding opportunity arise. This session will cover essential steps to prepare your project for success, including incorporating facilities goals in your strategic plan, understanding your patient base and community trends, analyzing your current operations to determine the space you need, and ensuring your center is financially sound before proceeding. We’ll also describe resources available to help you plan.
Health Centers as Assets in their Community: Assessing Your Environment (Market Assessment)
This session is designed to provide attendees with a tour of the range of research resources available for health centers to assess market opportunities (many of them are free for all to use). We will review techniques for how to determine the size and location of the low-income, uninsured and under-served population, estimate the level of unmet need, and translate this information into workforce needs and a preliminary capital project budget. This session will also take a broader view in exploring how to determine where community gaps are within a service area with respect to the Social Determinants of Health, identifying types of assets in a community that support health and wellness.
