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 Request for Information (RFI) surveys.
The RFI survey collects 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 how aging and disability CBOs are partnering and contracting with health care entities by collecting data on partnerships, contracts, services provided, financial impacts of partnerships, contracting challenges and more.
Results from the RFI survey 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.
Below is information on various resources that have been produced to demonstrate the results of each RFI survey to date.
