- Stakeholder engagement specialist with a county perspective: Connect with county staff across the state to promote innovation and align efforts on integrated services. We need 2 half-time or 1 full-time staff that is ready for a new challenge, from a county that wants to influence the direction. Costs for current county staff will be reimbursed to the home county through Modernization funds with a DHS interchange agreement.
- Data Scientist: Work continues to firm up this request. Contact Bina for more information.
MACSSA Fall Conference: Plans are coming together by MACSSA Fall Conference Committee, Janet Goligowski, Chair, and with a few key DHS staff, along with APHSA consultant Bryan Grove. Planned presentations will emphasize counties sharing their unique experiences working on integration initiatives using ISBM principles and guest speakers doing a “deep dive” into these concepts. In addition to county leaders, around 20 DHS staff will attend as our partners in ISBM. A special treat will be a keynote interview with Uma S. Ahluwalia, Director of Montgomery County Dept. of Health and Human Services.
Requested Actions Needed From MACSSA: None
New Trends in This Area: Less emphasis on the “process model” and more focus on the six guiding principles listed above, as foundational to integrated services
