Learning Collaboratives

Myers and Stauffer helps our clients transform their Medicaid delivery systems in part by facilitating the sharing of best practices and fostering innovation and communication. These forums are especially critical when developing new techniques and strategies to better manage the delivery of health care services and improve health outcomes.

Some of these learning forums are through on-site or online learning collaboratives and symposiums. Through the use of a rapid cycle improvement process such as the Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) approach, we strive to create environments of continuous learning to help our clients identify and reduce gaps between desired and actual performance. Using this iterative process, course corrections can be rapidly deployed, evaluated, measured, and further adjusted, if needed. Our staff has extensive experience leading PDSA sessions and use this approach during learning opportunities.

As a result of our extensive health and human services work, we recognize the importance of conducting a community-based needs assessment in conjunction with an environmental scan. These elements are vital when the project or initiative involves the meaningful evaluation of program(s), the building of comprehensive strategic plans, or setting forth an approach to inform and guide continuous quality improvement.

Myers and Stauffer uses both environmental scans and community needs assessments to identify and leverage existing assets as well as possible gaps and needs. Our proven methods set the foundation for performing various types of comprehensive analyses leading to the discovery of several key factors necessary to produce a comprehensive community-based assessment and forward-focused strategic roadmap.
