The time is ripe for aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) to leverage their expertise into fruitful financial relationships with healthcare partners. New payment policies that mandate value and accountability have opened a crack in the healthcare reimbursement wall, and CBOs are poised to climb through. But to take advantage of these new opportunities, CBOs will need to take a hard look at themselves, and make sure that they can adapt their organizational culture to an often unfamiliar world of contracting, quality measurement, data analysis and other issues that are standard operating procedure for healthcare players.
This web seminar, created for the Aging and Disability Business Institute and hosted by the American Society on Aging (ASA), will highlight two successful Massachusetts CBOs that have deftly navigated the shift in thinking necessary to succeed in this brave new world of integrated social and medical care. Presenters from Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley (a AAA) and Northeast Independent Living Program Inc. (a CIL) will describe challenges and strategies around preparing and persuading staff, thinking about services, costs, and administration in new ways, understanding infrastructure needs, working with new partners, and more. Tune in to learn how to push beyond the growing pains of culture change, and to embrace the transformation process!
