The Department Health and Human Services ReDesign

Diagram - DHHS Organization Redesign PrinciplesBeginning in early 2014, the Department of Health and Human Services' Senior Leadership Team has been working, with input and feedback from various levels of leadership within the Department, on an Organization ReDesign. The Department is facing unprecedented challenges requiring us to change the way that we do business. In order to continue to serve the people of New Hampshire as effectively and efficiently as possible, the Department must make changes. These changes will lead to improvements not only for those we serve, but for the organization as a whole. The ultimate vision for ReDesign, Building an organization that improves the health and independence of the people we serve by emphasizing a proactive and holistic approach, can only be realized by working together, with the staff here at the Department as well as our many stakeholders and partners within the greater DHHS community of those we serve.

Diagram - DHHS Collaborative PartnershipsAs the Department moves forward with ReDesign, the following goals provide the necessary guidelines:

  • Enable a team-based environment that organizes DHHS around the complex needs of our clients
    • Support the whole person approach to serving our clients' needs
    • Coordinate programs to provide services efficiently and effectively
    • Develop a team approach that focuses on outcomes and improves population health
  • Streamline and rationalize the delivery of services and support functions across the Department
  • Promote a DHHS organizational structure that encourages working across traditional boundaries and embraces positive change.

building partnerships, promoting well beingGiven that the task of an organization ReDesign was an enormous one, essentially starting with a blank white board, we designed a unique way to communicate a complex concept in a simple, creative and engaging way. That creative way is with the use of software called Video Scribe.

Viewing the video scribe Video File, you will see how the vision: Building an organization that improves the health and independence of the people we serve by emphasizing a proactive and holistic approach, begins to take shape through the shifting and changing of our infrastructure here at DHHS. There will be more information posted here in the coming months.
