Regional Alliances

Virginia earned a C+ for oral health on the Virginia Oral Health Report Card, which measures Virginia's progress on nine key oral health indicators with the highest return on investment. Recognizing each region has its own unique challenges and strengths, Virginia Health Catalyst convened regional oral health alliances to galvanize local providers, advance initiatives that improve access to oral health care in communities, and ultimately improve our Virginia’s grade. Regional alliances are located in Northern Virginia, Greater Richmond/Petersburg, and Hampton Roads; Catalyst also works with regional partners to advance hyperlocal oral health integration programs. Catalyst continues to support the regional alliances, empower new alliances, and develop partnerships with other organizations across the state.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Perinatal and Infant Oral Health Quality Improvement (PIOHQI) program will ensure obstetricians and nurse midwives in Virginia have the necessary education and resources to incorporate oral health services into their patient visits, provide oral health education to their patients, and build interprofessional relationships with dental professionals to facilitate referrals. This program is conducted in partnership with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), with funding from HRSA.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities experience higher rates of gum disease and face a shortage of providers equipped to deliver dental care to this population. This program aims to increase the number of dentists who are comfortable treating individuals with special health care needs. The program facilitates continuing education trainings for dentists across Virginia, presented by a dental hygienists and dentist with extensive experience in providing dental care to this population. The trainings effectively equip the participants with skills and knowledge to provide dental homes to more individuals with special health care needs, including cerebral palsy, autism, Downs Syndrome, developmental/ intellectual disabilities, and other physical or behavioral disabilities. Part of this program will also provide a forum for caregivers to provide feedback about the oral health barriers for their clients and/or family members with special health care needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Virginia Health Catalyst’s roots are in oral health advocacy, having been founded in 2010 as the Virginia Oral Health Coalition. From the outset, the organization worked to affect system change that better integrated oral health into overall health. In 2019, it was relaunched as Virginia Health Catalyst to better reflect its broadening focus, while continuing to ensure that all Virginians have equitable access to comprehensive health care that includes oral health.

The following two years proved to be extremely eventful for Catalyst. Long fought policy battles advocating for Medicaid expansion (2019) and adult dental benefits (2021) ended successfully and reflected positively on Catalyst’s reputation and its ability to affect meaningful change to improve health for Virginians. Oral health water fluoridation initiatives led Catalyst to a new body of work outside the health care system focused on equitable access to safe, trusted, affordable, fluoridated water for all Virginians. The COVID-19 pandemic brought further attention to the importance of Catalyst’s work on equity, access, and public health, as well as an influx of COVID relief funding and challenges to the way business was conducted in a remote environment.

Catalyst leadership was keenly aware of the opportunities and challenges created by all of these factors, and recognized a need to evaluate the organization’s readiness and strategies to meet the moment and plan for the future. The Board of Directors conducted an analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) and then engaged TvM Impact Consulting, LLC, to facilitate strategic planning in February of 2022.

The consultant worked closely with the CEO and a subcommittee of the Board through a series of in-person work sessions, developing a strategic action statement, evaluating priorities, and building a strategic framework to guide the organization’s continued success over the next three years. Staff was also convened for feedback and input midway through the process to better inform implementation. On June 16, 2022, the Board of Directors fully endorsed this three year Strategic Plan.

Strategic Action Statement
