Learning & Leadership Academy
Please Note: The Learning & Leadership Academy is postponed until further notice due to COVID-19. We hope to be able to continue this project soon.
The Foundation, in partnership with the New York School-Based Health Alliance will develop an Academy offering a series of modules on topics critical to building the financial strength and operational capacity of School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) in New York. These modules will utilize live presentations and webinars; on-line, self-directed training modules; and will offer related materials and resources.
Included will be such topics as:
How to start a SBHC
Optimized billing and coding
Developing standardized center policies and procedures
Student enrollment and engagement techniques
Staffing and expansion models
Building relationships with school principals and administration.
While training will initially focus on business and operations, it will also include the sharing of state-of-the-art program innovations. The Academy is a key element of the Foundation’s vision of a Center of Excellence.
Peer audiT & technical assistance program
The Foundation is undertaking the creation of an innovative program offering School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) an objective audit of center policies and practices.The Peer Audit Program will provide assessments to SBHCs to prepare for audits by regulatory and recognition agencies such as IPRO, TJC and PCMH. This will include on site assessments by trained peer auditors and/or virtual audits with the auditor and a self-audit tool to assess for gaps. The auditor will support the SBHC and make recommendations. Our goal is to support centers in their capacity to meet required state regulations, operating standards and principles but also to move toward achieving nationally recognized benchmarks of excellence.
