Using Process Flow Diagramming To Understand and Improve MCH Systems and Position Title V for Health Care Reform. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Amanda Cornett, MPH; Kori Flower, MS, MD, MPH; Kristen Hassmiller Lich, MHA, PhD; Sue Ewy, MS. Type: Video Conference. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 98 minutes.

Annotation: This interactive, hands‐on workshop provides background on process flow diagramming, features a presentation by a state from the National MCH Workforce Development Center cohort, and gives participants an opportunity to practice process flow diagramming using a simulated MCH process. Participants leave with a plan to apply this tool to MCH processes in their state/territory. To lead in health care reform, Title V agencies need enhanced training and tools for understanding complex processes. The National MCH Workforce Development Center (WDC) at UNC Chapel Hill has partnered with MCHB and AMCHP to offer intensive training to state and territorial Title V leaders. In the first WDC cohort, process flow diagramming has been a powerful tool for identifying areas for reducing redundancy and eliminating gaps in services.

Presenter(s): Donna Petersen, ScD, MHS; Michael Kogan, PhD. Type: Video Conference. Level: Intermediate. Length: 130 minutes.

Annotation: This skills‐building session provides participants with the knowledge and skills to determine the most appropriate NPMs based on state needs as part of the transformation of Title V; the workshop also focuses on development of state‐initiated Structure/Process measures.

During 2014‐15, state Title V programs will be completing five‐year needs assessments to select a new set of state MCH priorities and state performance measures; with the implementation of MCH 3.0, states also will select a subset of national performance measures (NPMs). In 2016, each Title V program will need to develop state‐initiated Structure and Process Measures to directly measure their impact on the NPMs.

Annotation: This archived webinar introduces a comprehensive self-assessment tool that helps Title V agencies assess health reform-related activities in states. The tool can help define a state's capacity and opportunities to leverage existing MCH skills to drive health transformation - in all its forms - for MCH populations. Iowa recently completed the tool and had this to say: "This tool was helpful for us to think about how Iowa's Title V program interfaces with the health care reform activities going on in our state. It helped us identify areas of strength and provided direction on important next steps as we move MCH forward post ACA implementation. Hopefully, other states will use the tool to ignite conversations in their states".
