Are you concerned whether your services are aligned with student needs?
Do you want to ensure the use of appropriate standards at your health service?
Are you considering staffing or funding changes?
Do you want to know if your college health program is aligned with comparable institutions?
ACHA’s Peer Review Assistance Program (PRAP) for institutional health services can help you address a variety of college health related subjects, whether you are looking to create a business plan, develop a student health insurance/benefits plan, build new facilities, increase utilization, evaluate health programming, and more. ACHA's role in the PRAP is to facilitate peer reviews, including by maintaining a list of potential peer reviewers, assisting institutional health services in identifying appropriate reviewers and defining the scope of the review, as well as scheduling site visits.
The Peer Review Assistance Program utilizes college health professionals who act as peer reviewers to help you address these issues. You set the objectives that determine how in-depth the peer review will be.
The PRAP is the perfect choice if you want to examine topics such as:
- Funding sources, generating revenue, and/or creating a business plan
- Integrating counseling and health services
- Staffing levels, compensation, and/or productivity
- Student health insurance/benefits plans
- Articulating how health and student health services support the institutional learning mission
- Planning facilities, size, layout, location, construction, and renovation
- Involving students in the organization, including consumerism, peer education, and policy
- Evaluating the effect of services on student learning outcomes
- Building quality teams of various fields (psychology, medicine, nursing, health promotion, etc.)
- Implementing user and/or non-user satisfaction surveys
- Creating marketing and public relations plans
- Assessing health programming in areas like health promotion, mental health, and prevention
- Other areas related to college health services
