About the training

This webinar presents a mixed methods study focused on: understanding how highly partnered Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) in regions with low levels of avoidable healthcare utilization for older adults establish and maintain partners in healthcare and other sectors; and, understanding how such partnerships are catalyzed, developed and sustained. This webinar will describe and present results from the quantitative and qualitative phases of the study, specifically describing the integration of these two methods.

  • Describe characteristics of highly partnered AAAs in regions with low levels of avoidable care;
  • Understand the features of this partnerships, including contracts with healthcare partners;
  • Identify some of the predictors of healthcare contracting; and
