Week 3: How metrics can inform your work

Outreach analysis is just as important as doing it, and this week you will be introduced to how to use a database to help assess outreach results. Participants will have the opportunity to access the “Get Covered Database” and enter their outreach efforts.

Week 4: Running a follow-up program over the phone

This lesson will cover best practices involved with running a phonebank and how to enter the results back into a database. Running a successful phonebanking program is the best way to reach consumers and connect them to coverage.

Week 5: Enrollment events best practices

Enrollment events are critical to the success of getting consumers covered. This week will cover the core principles involved with running a successful enrollment event and how to partner with assisters in your neighborhood.

Week 6: Program close and next steps

This session will review the key takeaways from the previous weeks and make a plan to continue this work into the fall. Participants who have attended more than four weeks will receive an Award of Completion.
