The continued march toward integrated care and value-based payment changed the landscape of service delivery for older adults and people with disabilities. The healthcare sector now recognizes the role of community-based organizations (CBO) in integrating long-term services to improve the quality of life for individuals, but many healthcare entities are looking to contract with one organization to serve large regions or states. This session will introduce successful networks in Massachusetts and Minnesota and explore ways to ensure network hubs and their partners are working together effectively and providing quality care to the individuals you serve.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List no fewer than three successful methods for maintaining a community network capable of contracting with healthcare systems;
  • Identify no fewer than two benefits to share data across the network; and,
  • Describe at least two ways a community network can adapt to the needs of a healthcare system when priorities change mid-contract (i.e., during an emergency such as the COVID-19 pandemic).
