Collaborations Between Health Care and Community-Based Organizations: How Can the ROI Calculator Help?

  • This event has ended.


This webinar will introduce participants to the Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator for Partnerships to Address the Social Determinants of Health, which was developed with support from the Commonwealth Fund. Health care organizations and community-based organizations (CBOs) have limited tools to support joint planning, goal-setting and estimating the financial return on investment, sustainability and health outcomes of new pilots or CBO programs that focus on addressing the social needs of complex patients. The ROI Calculator can be an important tool to help organizations collectively address these issues to build better partnerships by helping each partner to become more ready for the work of collaboration.

This webinar includes complimentary ASWB CE credits.
