Priority Area 4

Build a data-driven rationale for systems change, infrastructure development and sustaining health care workforce initiatives.



  • Develop a “Synthesis of What We Know Now” Product, including a summary of existing workforce supply and demand data, influential demographic and context trends, develop action steps to address gaps.


  • Develop a “Make the Case” Product, articulating the value of employer community unifying/creating one voice and why broader community should come to this table.


  • Explore the return on investment for embedding more WBL and training opportunities in industry.


  • Develop a data analytics collaborative among large providers to assemble a regional community “return on investment” for action, deeper employer/workforce connectivity, and priority healthcare service delivery strategies, and leverage it into a strategy around public policy, payment policies, and education and training systems.
