Check Out Integrated Care Trailblazer Stories in New Aging and Disability Business Institute Aging Today Supplement

You may not know it, but your colleagues in the aging and disability networks are innovating their way towards robust health care partnerships. Community-based organizations (CBOs) across the geographic and service spectrum are positioning themselves for integrated care success with a variety of health care payers and providers.

This Aging Today supplement features four organizations that have been selected to participate in a Trailblazers Learning Collaborative (TLC), convened by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL). They are the “leading-edge” of the Aging and Disability Networks, the first group of community-based organizations (CBOs) to tackle next-generation CBO–health care partnership issues. The collective will serve as a “think tank” for prototyping, and work together toward solutions to address  challenges and opportunities in contracting with health care entities.

The organizations profiled include:

  • Direction Home Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities (Akron, OH)
  • Senior Nutrition Services, a division of New Opportunities, Inc. (Waterbury, CT)
