CBO Health Care Contracting Survey
The Aging and Disability Business Institute seeks to support aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) as they enter into contacts and develop partnerships with health care entities to better serve older adults and people with disabilities. To understand how these relationships grow and change over time, the Business Institute, in partnership with the Scripps Gerontology Center of Excellence at Miami University, conducts recurring CBO-Health Care Contracting surveys.
The surveys collect data from aging and disability CBOs such as Area Agencies on Aging, Centers for Independent Living, nutrition services providers, senior centers and other CBOs that are contracting with health care. The survey seeks to capture information on how aging and disability CBOs work with health care entities by collecting data on partnerships, contracts, services provided, financial impacts of partnerships, contracting challenges and more.
Results from the surveys help the Business Institute develop resources that support CBOs at all stages of their contracting journeys, raise the visibility of CBO partnerships with health care entities, and educate policymakers and health care professionals on the growing capacity of aging and disability CBOs to engage in this of work.
