Start : 10:00 AM Pacific
End : 11:00 AM Pacific

Part of the Aging and Disability Business Institute Series—a collaboration of n4a and ASA.

Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) and hospital representatives will describe how their partnership has evolved to create common goals and initiatives on two levels: population health, and individual patient health. Initiatives range from data collection and trend analysis, to co-sponsored projects and interventions, to shared patient plans of care and exploration of payment models for sustainability. A survey process for assessing population health resulting in collectively owned follow-up strategies will be presented.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand key components of an easily replicable model of collaboration for data analysis and consensus building; resulting in collective strategies addressing health priorities;
  • Discuss critical steps in developing a comprehensive understanding of regional health needs in order to plan, develop and implement broad-based, collectively owned strategies to meet those needs;
  • Identify ideas for community initiatives designed to address key population health concerns; and,
  • Understand multiple ways an AAA and hospital interface on the individual patient level, and discuss possible modes of sustainability.
