IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING WORD LIMIT REQUIREMENTS: Please note that each and every assignment has its own word limit. My practicum site offers consultant services to a variety of clients across the state and nationwide, to improve the delivery of medical and health services by designing, implementing, and optimizing health systems. Although Hess III Consulting does not provide medical or health services directly to the communities and population, they develop collaborative efforts with healthcare vendors, government payors, managed care organizations, medical providers, philanthropies, and venture capitalists, among others, to improve the health outcomes of the population they serve and ensure they provide effective, equitable, and quality health care accessible for everyone to meet the needs of the communities and individuals, not only their medical and health but also to address other determinants affect health outcomes and health behaviors (Hess II Consulting, 2021). The consulting firm has adopted the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health’s Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) standards and operationalize them to develop and implement an institutionalized health equity approach that addresses the underlying causes of disparities and determinants that affect diverse communities. The consultants also apply their skills in Strategic Communications to provide cultural competency training and executive coaching to their clients, thus they can engage more effectively with patients and their families, understand their needs and develop strategies to meet them (Hess II Consulting, 2021). To improve the organizational cultural and linguistic competence I would recommend diversifying the consultant team, by hiring experts that represent different sectors or ethnic groups of the population. Since our population comprises White, Hispanic, Native American, Asian, African American, Indian, Filipino, Middle Eastern, etc., and more often than not some of these subgroups are misrepresented in healthcare settings, it would be beneficial to develop organizational policies and procedures that facilitate working in cross-cultural situations.
