Designing and launching a Community Health Worker program can be an overwhelming task. MHP Salud’s consultants are experts at helping organizations build the capacity to tackle such a project with confidence! With a strong CHW program, your organization will be able to increase its overall reach and provide services that are culturally and linguistically aligned with the communities you serve.

Consultants can support your Community Health Worker program efforts via email, phone, or live video meetings to help navigate challenges,  provide support, and pass along relevant skills and knowledge.

In this package, MHP Salud’s consultants will work with you without interrupting your staff’s schedule to revamp and enhance a portion of or an entire CHW program. Once we have an understanding of your needs, we’ll develop a customized strategy for your organization based on the project scope, timeline and the specific outcomes and deliverables that you choose.

To get started, you’ll need to:

  • provide a detailed description of your organization’s desired goals and outcomes
  • review and prepare materials that we’ll request from you to help us maximize the success of the project

From there, we’ll develop a customized price quote for your organization based on the project scope, timeline, and the specific outcomes and deliverables that you choose. Once we’ve discussed the details, we’ll work with you to ensure your Community Health Worker program is effective.

In order to help organizations unleash their full data and evaluation potential, we provide consultation services in the form of a readiness assessment for organizations who want to move to a digital data system. We’ll begin with a CHW Program Evaluation Readiness Assessment in which you’ll provide the data collection instruments and other documentation related to your current evaluation process.

Our experts carefully review this information and provide a readiness assessment document summarizing strengths, areas for improvement, and tailored recommendations for next steps. These may include recommendations for further consultation and training to get your evaluation system ready to go digital.

Frequently Asked Questions

Working with Community Health Workers is new to me and I want to learn how to set up my program and do the work myself, but I know I may need advice or support along the way. Does consulting support make sense for me?2023-05-17T14:27:23-04:00

Yes! We can develop a customized consulting package to meet your needs.  We can provide support, training, and resources tailored to your organization and programmatic needs — but you handle the program design and implementation.

Will my organization be expected to perform any tasks or provide information during consulting?2023-05-17T14:27:06-04:00

Prior to consulting, the consultant will work to tailor their approach to your organization’s needs, which, depending on the project goals, can involve communication with leadership and staff, as well as sharing organizational documents. During this time, your organization can determine how much, if any, check-ins they would like to include during the consulting process to review the work as it progresses and make sure it meets your needs.

How do I contact you for help once I purchase a package?2023-05-17T14:26:48-04:00

Once you purchase a package, you will be assigned to an MHP Salud staff member who will be your consultant for the duration of your consulting support, and you contact them via email, phone or video call (we provide all three contact methods). You can also mix it up depending on your needs and the situation. For example: a quick question could be answered via email or phone while a longer more complex subject can be discussed via video call.

Can you do in-person consultation?2023-05-17T14:26:35-04:00

If you would like to schedule in-person meetings or consultations, we can provide a quote for travel costs, travel time, and on-site consultation in addition to the requested deliverables. However, we can also schedule virtual meetings. MHP Salud works across several states and is accustomed to collaborating virtually. We can set up video meetings that are engaging, interesting and helpful.

How do I know my assigned consultant will be able to answer my questions?2023-05-17T14:26:26-04:00

Prior to initiating your consulting package, we collect information on the types of consulting support that you are looking for as well as the specifics of your organization and CHW program. We match our staff to you based on those needs. All assigned staff are full-time employees at MHP Salud and have experience working with CHWs in the program topic areas that you are interested in. As our primary focus is on running CHW programs ourselves, we understand the ins and outs of the everyday management of a CHW program and the challenges you may encounter along the way.

Do you offer a free consultation to help determine whether your consultant will be a good fit?2023-05-17T14:26:11-04:00

Our sales team will schedule a meeting to learn about your organization, program, and consulting needs in order to develop your customized consultation package. Once your contract is in place, depending on the terms of your contract and the scope of services, a set number of pre-consultation hours may be included to ensure your consultant has all the information needed to successfully deliver the services outlined in your contract. You are welcome to purchase a smaller package to start with and add on at a later date if you need additional support. Unfortunately, due to time and budgetary constraints, our consultants cannot offer consultations without a signed contract in place. Our sales team will use the information gathered for your package to assign a consultant who has the necessary knowledge and expertise to address your specific needs.

I don’t have the time to do the project myself. Can you do it for me?2023-05-17T14:24:14-04:00

Of course! Our individualized deliverables-based consulting focuses on producing a specific product or products to meet your needs and on your timeline. Some examples include designing a program or creating an outreach plan. Tell us what you need and in what form and we can provide a cost estimate.
