AMGH is launching its Clinical Services Planning on Monday February 4. , Clinical Services Planning will build upon the Strategic Planning Process that took place last year and facilitate care delivery at AMGH both in the short term and long term.
What's the difference between strategic planning & clinical services planning?
A Strategic Plan sets out a picture of our future. It defines our overall purpose and who we serve; provides a broad sense ofthe type of services we should offer; and tells how we will achieve our goals as an organization.
A Clinical Service Plan is the logical next step that defines what services we should offer in more detail now that we know what our overall picture is for the future. It brings the discussions down from the 20,000 foot level to ground zero as we define in detail what those services are and why we chose them as being core to our business.
The process uses current data and information about the external funding and service environment we are in. It applies evidence based best practices in the recommendations and it determines market share information that highlights whowe could be serving in future. It validates assumptions through your feedback to form a service 'blueprint 'of possibilities and knowns. It informs our decision makingby giving us options, recommendations and scenarios.
