Health Systems Planning
The Health Systems Planning Process (HSP) is a web based software program developed by and for the IHS specifically to aid in the planning and preliminary design of health facilities. Based upon the expertise of experienced IHS personnel, and the historical record of previously constructed health centers and hospitals, a statistical model was created utilizing population numbers and demographics to determine certain criteria, such as the appropriate numbers of exam rooms, dental chairs, size of pharmacy, labor & delivery, etc. to be allocated to provide care for a specific population. It then determines a proposed size for such a facility with department-by-department breakdowns.
