Administered in partnership with Scripps Gerontology Center, the Aging and Disability Business Institute’s Request for Information (RFI) survey measures the extent to which aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) are contracting with health care entities—individually and as part of a network—and to better understand the partnerships, services, target populations, payment models, opportunities and challenges related to these contracts. Data from the RFI help the Business Institute develop targeted and relevant resources for CBOs engaged in this work as well as materials that help raise the visibility of partnerships between CBOs and health care entities. The RFI also helps us educate policymakers and health care professionals on the growing capacity of aging and disability CBOs for these partnerships.
Strengthening Ties: Contracting Between Community-Based Organizations and Health Care Entities, a data brief from Scripps Gerontology Center, summarizes findings from the 2020 RFI survey. This research brief presents data from the 2020 RFI survey and highlights trends among aging and disability CBOs such as health care partners, services delivered, payment structures, contracting challenges and partnership experiences. The report also tracks trends in how the contracting landscape has changed over the past three years.
