Community Health Worker Consulting by MHP Salud
MHP Salud’s consulting services focus on support for Community Health Worker programs that is collaborative, personalized, flexible, and provides you with the tools you need to implement sustainable change in your community.
If you are interested in consulting support, we will provide a free consultation with an MHP Salud expert to review your program goals and provide targeted recommendations as well as customized consulting packages when needed. Below is an overview of our support options
If you’re interested in learning how to design, launch, or optimize a Community Health Worker program to build your organization’s capacity and increase its overall reach, this is the option for you. Our hours-based consulting support option includes an expert consultant to provide advice and insight for the duration of your program. Consultants are available via email, phone, or live video meetings to help navigate challenges, provide relevant support, and pass along relevant skills and knowledge.
If you’re looking to optimize your organization’s Community Health Worker program without interrupting your staff’s schedule or want to revamp a portion of a CHW program but do not have the time and resources to perform this on your own, MHP Salud can create and deliver a customized package to achieve these goals. 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 talked through the details, we’ll work with you to ensure your Community Health Worker program is effective.
We can provide a custom price quote for packages of other sizes as well. Please note that these costs apply for virtual support only and consulting assistance can be provided through email, phone, or video chat.
Data and Evaluation Consulting Services with Dimagi & MHP Salud
For over thirty-five years, we’ve been implementing Community Health Worker programs to support underserved Latino communities across the United States. And in that time, changes in technology have advanced the way we serve our communities. One key advancement comes from our partnership with Dimagi, a technology developer focused on providing open-sourced software suitable for low-resource settings and underserved communities. We utilize Dimagi’s Commcare application on the mobile devices of our Community Health Workers.
In order to help organizations unleash their full data and evaluation potential, we’ve now teamed up with Dimagi to bring you a new consulting solution. Is your organization still using pen and paper to collect data? We can help you prepare for a migration into the digital world. Are you not ready to move to digital, but still think your system needs work? We can help with that too.
Frequently Asked Questions: Hours Based Consulting
An hours-based package is perfect for you! We are there when you need us to answer questions, recommend resources, or talk you through a problem area — but you handle the program design and implementation. You can start with a small package of hours and add on as needed or buy a bigger package up front to take advantage of discounted hourly rates.
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 in order to review the work as it progresses and make sure it meets your needs.
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 mix it up and use your hours in the way that best suits 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.
Of course! Outcomes-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.
