ASA's 2018 Managed Care Academy Summit

CEU Credits: 3.

New ways of paying for value-based care have changed the landscape for delivering services to older adults and people with disabilities. Community-based organizations (CBOs) can play a central role in integrating long-term services and supports with the healthcare sector. This Summit presents key content from the Linkage Lab, a leadership and management development program. Its goal is to prepare select CBOs seeking to deliver care coordination services for effective partnership with healthcare entities through structured management education and onsite technical assistance.

The program addresses the components of building CBO business acumen – what it is and why it is needed, assessing the external environment,
mindset shifts of CBO leaders and staff, and making the business case. The content of this program is also available in the Generations
Field Guide Supplement, which will be freely available online in late March 2018.

With increasing frequency, health care organizations that work with complex populations are pursuing partnerships with community-based organizations to address both the medical needs and social determinants of health. The development of these cross-sector relationships is happening under a variety of partnership models, yet little is known regarding the financial, operational, cultural, and strategic considerations that contribute to their success. This Boot Camp presentation will highlight innovative and successful cross-sector collaborations, and will present lessons learned from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded study on bridging community-based human services and health care. Hear key findings uncovered through this project, including core partnership characteristics and insights from diverse partnership models serving low-income and populations with complex health and social needs.
