Program designs must include elements of development to allow for measured growth, improvement, ongoing relevancy and forecasting. A targeted and tailored program development maps the identified critical community needs with anticipated policy and practice changes as well as opportunities tied with the program’s inputs, service activities, outputs, intermediate outputs and end outcomes. In the current service landscape for integrated care and value based payment, program development must include an evaluation of performance with required measures indicated for the service population, their health needs, stratified and weighted medical and social determinant risks and clearly identified outputs. Being able to forecast growth, stabilize revenue cycle management and identify and implement a plan to minimize risk to outcomes are all parts of a comprehensive program development.
