Gain knowledge of the Title V needs assessment framework and general timeline Understand the local needs assessment process Be familiar with technical assistance and useful resources available for local health jurisdictions Be acquainted with data products developed for the local needs assessment Today’s Learning Objectives
Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant Primary source of federal support for improving the health and well- being of mothers and children. Title V MCH Block Grant reporting requirements mandate completion of an annual report/application that specifies: –needs of the State MCH population; –programs and policies implemented to meet those needs –monitor progress toward achieving federal and state performance outcome measures –Management/expenditure of funds Every five years a comprehensive statewide needs assessment must be conducted of the MCH population
Major Conceptual Frameworks and Strategies for 2015 Needs Assessment Maintain focus on key conceptual frameworks: –Social Determinants of Health –Life Course Approach –Health Equity –Population Health model Aligned with Major National and State Initiatives –Assess impact of health care reform on MCAH populations –Coordinated with Healthy People 2020, National Prevention Strategy and Let’s Get Healthy California –CDPH strategic plan Improve Coordination and Collaboration with Department of Health Care Services, Systems of Care Division (Children with Special Health Care Needs)
Local Needs Assessment Conceptual Framework Decentralize statewide needs assessment process by having each local jurisdiction conduct a needs assessment Key Objectives 1.Identify local needs and capacity 2.Obtain extensive stakeholder input at the local level 3.Focus local MCAH efforts by having each jurisdiction identify priority areas they will focus on during the next five years 4.Develop local five-year action plan
Major State MCAH Needs Assessment Components Local health jurisdictions conduct a needs assessment (identify needs, set priorities, assess capacity, stakeholder input) Analyze and summarize local jurisdiction reports Analyze statewide quantitative epidemiologic data Assess State MCAH system capacity Obtain external stakeholder input Obtain public input on needs assessment report State MCAH Program will submit statewide report to the federal MCH Bureau on July 15, 2015

Title V Local MCAH Needs Assessment Process
What is Different about this Needs Assessment? In the 2010 Needs Assessment, LHJs completed: A Comprehensive Capacity Assessment Data analysis to identify rates, determine and understand trend data, including race/ethnic disparities In the upcoming Needs Assessment, LHJs will: Not be required to do a separate capacity assessment Receive data in a simplified format Receive sample templates of Problem Analyses and Action Plans
MCAH Directors Needs Assessment Workgroup Workgroup meetings began in April Representatives from rural and urban communities Representatives from new and experienced MCAH Directors Reviewed Needs Assessment documents and provided feedback on content, process and clarity To anticipate and assist with developing FAQs
Goals of the 2015 Local Title V Needs Assessment Data-driven community planning to inform development of 5-year Action Plans that address a specific list of health problems using standardized objectives. MCAH will provide local data to decrease the data burden and allow more time for a collaborative community planning process Increase MCAH program impact by focusing on a strategic list of health problems Focus on meeting with stakeholders/community partners to discuss data, prioritize problems and identify best practice strategies to address problems
Why use a Strategic Priority Problem List and Develop 5-year Action Plans? Improve ability to quantify and describe MCAH efforts and outcomes Improve collective impact across the State Support common understanding of problems, partners, strategies and measures Encourage alignment and leveraging of human and other resources Improve continuity of local programming Recommendations from MCH Bureau
How did MCAH Select Priority Problems? Considerations: Health problems unique to MCAH Prior local Needs Assessment findings State and federal priority initiatives and problems MCAH topical experts Commonly used local MCAH SOW objectives Health topic gaps and emerging issues
Resources/Tools Data resources Priority Problem List Sample Problem Analyses Sample 5-Year Action Plans Technical assistance and Training……
