ACL Blog: Request for Information Survey from the Aging and Disability Business Institute

Blog Post July 17, 2017

The Aging and Disability Business Institute [operated by National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and a team of partners] has launched a request for information (RFI) survey to better understand the relationships and contracts between community-based organizations (CBOs) and health care entities (such as hospitals, health systems, or payers).

The evolving health care environment has created many new care delivery opportunities that require better integration between the services provided in the medical setting and services/programs provided in the community. Gathering insights into the successes and challenges of partnering with health care entities has become especially critical. Please help strengthen the aging and disability networks by sharing your expertise and experience.

The results of the RFI will help the Business Institute better support disability and aging community-based organizations and others as they capitalize on opportunities to engage in new business arrangements with health care partners and diversify their funding streams—ultimately modernizing their organizations from those dependent on government grants to more entrepreneurial organizations funded in part by health care dollars.
