The VISN 4 CRH is a repository of clinical and administrative staff that serve all VA facilities within a VISN to provide virtual and in-person care to support Veterans in primary care, mental health, and various specialty areas. Staff within a CRH are expected to provide services to facilities that are underserved or experiencing gaps in clinical services due to the inability to match provider supply with demand. It is recognized that a significant portion of services within CRHs will be completed virtually across different facilities; therefore, the VISN CRH Director will be expected to assist all VISN facilities by managing these complex actions and advocating with appropriate agencies to increase the efficiency of these services.
The VISN CRH Director will work directly with VISN level leadership (e.g., VISN leads for Primary Care, Telehealth, Mental Health, Pharmacy, Nursing, etc.), to ensure that VISN CRH services are high performing. In addition, the VISN CRH Director will collaborate with various Veterans Affairs (VA) Central Offices (e.g., National CRH Leadership Team, Office of Primary Care, Office of Connected Care, Clinical Pharmacy Practice Office, Pharmacy Benefits Management, Office of Veterans Access to Care (OVAC), Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, etc.).
The VISN CRH Director is responsible to ensure that CRH services are delivered to the sites of greatest need across the VISN. CRH services include direct clinical support to underserved facilities within the VISN, Telehealth Emergency Management (TEM) sites, non-VA sites of care, and Clinical Contact Centers. The CRH Director ensures standardization of VISN CRH resources, including request for service and deployment protocols to underserved VA facilities.
The VISN CRH Director is responsible to ensure CRH services are completed at the highest standard and in alignment with national CRH standards. The VISN CRH Director will coordinate with various VISN and VA Central Offices and ensure that regulatory and quality standards are implemented across the VISN. The individual will ensure that all CRH services are utilized appropriately and follow specific CRH and telehealth, and other pertinent program office policies and procedures.
The VISN CRH Director is required to exercise a high level of organizational skill, independent judgment, problem-solving ability, and content expertise in program development and implementation. The position requires the ability communicate effectively with field staff and VISN, CRH, and VA Central Office leadership on a variety of clinical and administrative strategic priorities.
