New Survey on Community-Based Organizations-Health Care Partnerships

The Aging and Disability Business Institute<> is continuing its work to better understand contracting relationships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and health care entities. Today they are launching a second RFI Survey to learn more about CBO-Health Care Partnerships, and to find out how the contracting landscape has changed over the past year.

With your help, they learned from their 2017 Request for Information Survey that aging and disability CBOs across the country are partnering with health care payers and providers to address social and behavioral determinants of health. With partners at Scripps Gerontology Center, they reported their findings in a brief report<> and on the Health Affairs blog<>.

Learning more about the number of contracts CBOs have with health care partners, as well as what types of health care entities they are partnering with and what services they are providing, will help to better understand the current landscape and increase the number, quality, and sustainability of contracts between CBOs and the health care sector. The Business Institute needs your help to continue to build knowledge about, and capacity for, these important collaborations.


Even if you do not currently have a contract with a health care entity, please complete this survey. All responses will provide vital insights into training and technical assistance needs for CBOs seeking to contract with health care entities. In addition, they want to hear from you whether or not your organization completed the survey last year. Please coordinate efforts within your organization to ensure only one survey is completed per agency.

The survey should take about 10 to 30 minutes to complete based on your current contracting status. Please respond no later than Monday, July 2.

Following your participation, your agency will be able to enter a drawing for a registration (up to $700) to attend a conference of your choice.

If you have technical issues with accessing the survey or answering the questions, please contact Scripps Gerontology Center, at<> or 855-359-3033.

Thank you in advance for your participation, and for the incredible work you continue to do to serve older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers.
