Health Center Active Shooter & Intruder Response Training
Tentative Agenda Speaker Bio Register

Date: August 24, 2016  

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Location: IPHCA Institute for Learning, 500 S. Ninth St., Second Floor, Springfield, IL 62701

About The Training

This training will provide healthcare administrators, security and front line personnel with information and strategies on recognizing and responding to a violent intruder. Strategos International has recently provided training with FQHCs in Missouri and will be providing a second training on workplace safety. Due to high reviews, Missouri Primary Care Association recommended Strategos International to IPHCA for this training.

Typically, the questions asked when discussing whether or not to prepare for the possibility of a violent intruder are: “Since it’s not likely to occur, is this something we should really spend time and resources preparing for?” or “What are the costs of doing something?” The real question to ask is “What are the costs of doing NOTHING?”

Target Audience

The training is intended for office and business managers, facility supervisors, clinic directors, chief executive officers, chief operating officers, compliance and quality improvement personnel.

About The Training

For the second year in a row, IPHCA has been selected by Enroll America to partner in the Get Covered Academy Endowment Project, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, for IPHCA member health centers. This year, IPHCA is participating in the Leadership Track of the Get Covered Academy Endowment, but centers who did not participate last year are still welcome to join.

Through this project, health centers that commit to participate through summer 2017 must attend a two-day training on August 30 - 31 led by Enroll America (EA) on outreach strategies and will obtain access to many EA tools, learn data collection activities and analysis, as well as how to write a communications plan and work effectively with municipalities.

  • Overview of Training

    • The Endowment exists to support direct consumer contact through goal setting, outreach planning and regular evaluation.  All training and support will focus on identifying the uninsured, following-up with them, and ensuring they make it through the enrollment process.
    • Key components of the in-person training

    o   Health centers will create (or edit an existing) OE4 outreach plan.

    o   Sessions will be highly interactive, including group discussion, role play and scenario exercises.

    o   The agenda will focus on the enrollment cycle – initial consumer contact, follow-up, the consumer enrollment experience and post-enrollment follow-up.

    o   Tool usage, data systems, and assessing progress will be a theme threaded throughout training. Again this year, health center will have the option to utilize Enroll America's Connector tool for data collection and appointment scheduling and using it for evaluation will be covered in the training.

    • ​​​Enroll America will provide regular reports to assess progress to your goals based on your data entry. The reports will focus on a few key metrics we know are central to the enrollment cycle:

    o   Health centers must commit to reporting to EA uninsured IDs, follow-up calls made to consumers, appointments scheduled and where possible, resulting enrollments through Summer 2017.

    • OE4 coaching – After the in-person training, EA will set-up regular biweekly check-ins between health centers and their Enroll America trainer. The conversations will be used to celebrate what’s going well and when goals aren’t being met.  Discussions will occur about adjustments that should be made.

    Target Audience

    This training is intended for outreach and enrollment coordinators and assisters. Limit to three people per organization.
