This HRSA Strategic Plan FY 2019 – FY 2022 (hereafter referred to as the Strategic Plan) is a blueprint for HRSA as it addresses ongoing access and service delivery needs in the context of an evolving health care system. The Strategic Plan reflects the Agency’s commitment to build upon past successes while advancing its mission to improve health outcomes and eliminate health disparities through access to quality services, a skilled health workforce, and innovative programs. The Strategic Plan sets forth four mission-critical goals:
- Goal 1: Improve Access to Quality Health Services
- Goal 2: Foster a Health Care Workforce Able to Address Current and Emerging Needs
- Goal 3: Achieve Health Equity and Enhance Population Health
- Goal 4: Optimize HRSA Operations and Strengthen Program Management
For each of these goals, objectives and sub-objectives are delineated to provide greater clarity and focus for aligning HRSA programs and activities. Although presented separately, these goals are interrelated. The successful achievement of one goal can impact the success of others.
The HRSA Strategic Plan will help inform program and operational-level planning and resource allocation decisions over the next four years. It aligns with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) 2018–2022 Strategic Plan and will directly support the priorities of the Administration and the HHS Secretary and other areas mandated by law. Finally, the HRSA Strategic Plan reinforces principles of organizational efficiency and effectiveness to better meet the needs of the populations HRSA serves and ensure effective use of taxpayer dollars.
HRSA’s approach to meeting its mission is driven by the following principles, which will guide all aspects of organizational decision making and resource allocation:
- Implement value-based health care delivery for all programs to optimize financial investments and improve patient outcomes
- Better leverage data to improve evidence-based decision making and organizational performance management
- Partner with an array of stakeholders, including individuals, families, and communities; federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal government agencies; and the public, private, and international health sectors to achieve optimal health outcomes
- Reduce regulatory and administrative burdens on our grantees and partners
- Emerge as a leading agency in harnessing technology and adopting innovative practices to improve health outcomes
