Resource Overview

The process of finding and hiring the best-qualified candidate for a Quality and/or Health IT job in your health center is time-intensive and challenging. Having job vacancies or recruiting the wrong person can cost the organization in terms of real money, time spent, morale, and productivity. Successful hiring requires refining the recruitment process, which includes analyzing the requirements of a job, attracting employees to that job, screening and selecting applicants, and hiring the new employee to the organization.

This section includes resources to help you define and refine your recruiting methods.  These are tools that have been tested by health centers in the field and are proven to work. These resources reflect the combined experience of several successful health centers around the country.

Also available are templates for Health IT Job Functions and samples of Health IT Job Descriptions.

Enabling Services Data Collection

Templates and Implementation Guidance

The Enabling Services Data Collection Implementation Packet serves as a guide for health centers wishing to codify and track enabling services using AAPCHO’s standardized template. Health centers may tailor many of the detailed demographic categories to their own health center needs, while keeping uniform, the broader categories for national health center aggregation purposes. The packet includes real-life sample encounter forms, protocols on data collection, a recommended work plan, project benefits and challenges, and fact sheets from actual data collected based on the enabling services data collection model.
