As nonprofit hospitals focus on meeting the triple aim of improving quality of care and population health while reducing costs, developing an implementation strategy to fulfill IRS requirements can achieve far more than simply “checking the box.” Rather, nonprofit hospitals can leverage the community benefit implementation strategy to advance both greater institutional alignment and health impact. HRiA’s SIP-LINE approach meets the needs and requirements of the strategic implementation plan (SIP) while leading to L-I-N-E:
- Leadership engagement and buy-in
- Institutional alignment of priorities
- Nurturing of community-based partnerships
- Enhanced impact of community health strategies and initiatives
Beyond compliance: Maximizing investment in community benefit implementation strategy outlines the steps of creating the strategic implementation plan and the value of a process that links community benefit and institutional strategic planning.
