PSI helps chronically ill patients with unaffordable medical expenses.
Strategic Plan

Our Strategy for Achieving our Goals:

In 2016, the PSI staff developed a strategic plan that will carry us into 2021 and beyond. During this time period our organization aims to:

  • Expand our patient centered delivery model while balancing operational efficiencies.

  • Be the champion for our patients.

  • Continue innovative activities of PSI to ensure sustainability.

  • Identify and diversify our funding streams.

Capacity for Achieving Our Goals:

  • Our organizational success is a result of PSI's exceptional board and executive leadership teams as well as our expert staff members. PSI provides a kind, caring, and generous work environment which enables staff to provide for the thousands of chronically ill patients we financially assist.

  • PSI continually focuses its efforts to create efficiencies, streamline processes, and conserve every dollar for the direct assistance for the people that we serve. This is done by continuous quality assurance monitoring and adherence to strong internal controls.

Measuring & Reporting Our Progress Towards Our Goals:

Through the PSI Board of Directors, the executive management committee, and key personnel, PSI reviews our organizational goals and strategies on a continual basis. Changes to internal and external operations are made after careful evaluation of patient assistance conditions and organizational needs assessments.   This process ensures that PSI maintains capacity to achieve its goals and continue our growth on an annual basis. Additionally, PSI conducts extensive staff, donor, and patient surveys. In 2016, the organization used the services of The Spark Mill, a Richmond, VA Strategic Planning firm to facilitate the process.  Consultants from The Spark Mill collected information from four areas as a part of the information-gathering portion of the planning process.
