IMPACT CONSULTING: WHAT WE DO
With the increasing demand for youth mental health services, accessing care can often feel daunting for youth and their families. They must navigate a patchwork of services, often travelling long distances or spending months on waitlists to access treatment. At the same time, mental health service providers are challenged to meet this demand with outdated or inefficient processes and systems.
It doesn’t need to be this way. At C4K, our Impact Consulting team works directly with youth mental health service providers to identify and alleviate the barriers to maintaining and expanding their capacity. Our goal is to support these agencies to deliver the best possible mental health services to youth and their families.
Specifically, we work collaboratively with agencies to assess their capacity challenges and design tailored solutions to help overcome them. Our services are typically offered at no charge to non-profit agencies through our internal team of consultants as well as through external support from our pro-bono consulting partners.
While C4K takes a tailored approach to determining your needs, some general services that can be provided include:
- Digital Transformation: Implement digital infrastructure to capture clinical and administrative data (e.g. electronic health record systems) and provide operational efficiencies (e.g. policy management or digital human resource systems).
- Data Quality and Reporting: Create and implement data dashboards and reporting systems to enhance data quality and operational decision-making.
- Current State Assessment: Analyze data and systems to identify opportunities for process improvements and to make strategic recommendations.
- Operational Improvement: Design and execute targeted solutions to address gaps or leverage opportunities to enhance capacity.
