Invest: Teaming Up for a Stronger LDH and a Healthier Louisiana is the Louisiana Department of Health’s business plan for state fiscal year (FY) 2023 (July 1, 2022-June 30, 2023). This plan builds on progress made under the FY 2022 business plan, which was reported in the Outcomes Report released with the 2023 business plan. In addition to deepening and learning from our efforts over the past year, LDH has set a new course for 2023 with ambitious initiatives and goals that will deliver results for Louisianans.
A crucial lesson from the last business plan was that our work has an exponential impact when we collaborate on the same goals with partners, stakeholders, and community leaders. Partnership is a core theme in our FY23 business plan, which focuses on shared goals, efforts, and investments to measurably improve the health of Louisiana residents.
LDH has five major categories in which we are committed to making measurable improvements:
- Improve health and well-being across the lifespan of Louisianans
- Support vulnerable and underserved populations
- Invest in and empower #TeamLDH
- Improve performance, accountability, and compliance
- Strengthen customer service, partnerships, and community relations
The health of our state is dependent upon a strong, diverse healthcare workforce. In addition to addressing Louisiana’s workforce, we will focus on strengthening the work and success in the areas of maternal and child health, behavioral health, and chronic disease, as well as improving internal LDH culture, transparency of operations, and compliance with applicable standards.
This business plan — comprising 18 initiatives, 45 goals, and 253 deliverables — includes timelines and milestones as both measures of progress and a means to increase accountability to the residents of Louisiana, our stakeholders, and LDH.
We look forward to releasing our FY23 outcomes report as well as our FY24 business plan in the first quarter of FY24, which will detail our successes and identify opportunities for further improvements as we invest in a stronger, healthier Louisiana.
