Collaborative Strategic Model

The Strategic Goals set forth here will serve as a compass for ALTCS AWFDA (Banner – University Family Care, Department of Economic Security, Mercy Care, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan) across the state of Arizona.

Why a collaborative model for Arizona?

There are a variety of good public and private efforts underway to improve the Arizona 5 C’s of WFD.  The challenge with these efforts it that they often function in isolation and diminish the overall impact to the industry.  The magnitude of the workforce challenges facing the AZ long-term care sector requires multiple stake holders to work together for meaningful and sustainable impact.

Strategic Goals

1. Provider Education and Resource Management

Build the infrastructure and processes for this website to be a fundamental resource landing page for Caregivers, provider agencies, and industry leaders.

2. Caregiver Campaign

Together, we will launch a unified awareness campaign for Caregivers in the state of Arizona providing resources for this specific workforce.

3. Caregiver Career Pathways

As a united group, we will identify and promote existing advancement opportunities and create new career pathways that include ladders, lattices, and development of new positions.

4. AZ Healthcare Workforce Goals and Metrics Assessment

To reduce provider burden, we will collaborate across all LOBs to gather the data needed to meet the requirements of ACOM 407 in a single ACOM Provider Metrics Survey.
