Join the Aging and Disability Business Institute (Business Institute) and Scripps Gerontology Center for the release of new data on contracting between aging and disability community-based organizations (CBOs) and healthcare entities. As we have learned through previous Business Institute surveys, aging and disability CBOs across the country are contracting with healthcare payers and providers to address social and behavioral determinants of health. This webinar will present the results of our fourth survey on CBO-healthcare contracting, revealing how healthcare-CBO contracts are evolving. Presenters will discuss trends in healthcare partners, services delivered, payment structure and more. Participants will also learn about common CBO challenges and experiences with contracting, in addition to how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected contracting efforts.

Participants of this webinar will be able to:

  • Describe trends in contracting between CBOs and healthcare entities;
  • Summarize how COVID-19 impacted CBO contracting efforts; and
  • Identify common challenges CBOs experience when contracting with healthcare entities
