With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO will be developing an issue brief that explores the expanding role of Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS) and new opportunities resulting from this expanded role, especially opportunities available through health system reform and new or emerging healthcare reimbursement mechanisms. Topics addressed will include the role of DIS in linkage to HIV care and other medical and social services, new opportunities for DIS to support healthcare coordination and delivery, and reimbursement for DIS services.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is to identify a consultant to support the development of the issue brief. The consultant will be responsible for synthesizing available research and information, gathering additional information and input from key stakeholders and experts in the field, and writing the brief. The proposal submission date is September 9, 2016. For questions about the RFP and application process, contact Jennifer Skillicorn, Lead Analyst for Healthcare Integration, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-756-0162.
