For over 20 years, we’ve helped organizations train Community Health Workers (CHWs), develop programs, and strengthen their offerings.
In addition to conducting our own Community Health Worker (CHW) programs, MHP Salud offers a variety of training and consulting services to help organizations create and optimize their own CHW programs. When we provide these services, we put our 35 years of experience to work to enhance your organization’s services and improve your overall reach. Our training and consulting services are unique to the industry, made effective by the following qualities:
Successful CHW Programs
Over the course of our organization’s history, we have implemented these programs with many positive outcomes and have addressed a variety of topic areas, including maternal and child health, diabetes, intimate partner violence, applying for public benefits, and chronic disease prevention and management. As a result of this extensive experience, we are capable of assisting clients with a CHW program in an extensive range of topic areas. Our programs also are outcomes-driven, cost-effective, and produce a strong return on investment (ROI).
Expert Knowledge of the CHW Landscape
To date, we have worked in 44 states, including Puerto Rico and the Federated States of Micronesia, via direct services (MHP Salud-led programs), training, technical assistance, and consulting. We can successfully work in so many different places because we are keenly aware that the rules and regulations surrounding CHWs vary state by state. MHP Salud participates in several state CHW associations and professional groups to stay informed about the evolving CHW landscape. Some states have CHW certification programs, though many do not. A few states and health plans even allow providers to bill for CHW services, though the process to do so varies. Regardless of where your organization is located, we have the experience and resources to help you optimize a CHW program in your community.
No two organizations are alike, and we make a point to address this by helping clients identify the best product or package that suits them. We offer training services for Community Health Workers at any stage of their career, whether they’re brand-new or seasoned professionals, and customize every consulting package according to our clients requests, budget, and overall needs. Because our products and packages are so varied, we are happy to work with clients to discuss their needs in greater detail to help them find a solution that suits their needs and their budget.
