Health reform and demographic changes present unique opportunities and challenges for community-based organizations (CBO). This session will examine the vital need for partnerships between CBOs and healthcare entities, as well as provide examples from Ohio and Maryland of successful strategies for developing and sustaining these relationships. The purpose of this session is to set the stage for the ASA Healthcare and Aging Network (HAN) Special Programs at the March 2017 Aging in America conference.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the national policy and practice transformation shaping the healthcare delivery system for older adults;
  • Understand successes and challenges in developing partnerships between CBOs and traditional healthcare delivery systems; and,
  • Describe tools and skills that will help them better understand how to approach health plans and insurers to develop business relationships to provide services and supports for older adults.
