Community-based organizations and health care contracting
The Aging and Disability Business Institute (Business Institute)* is working to better understand formal and contractual relationships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and health care entities.
To strengthen our understanding of contracts between CBOs and health care entities, as well as CBOs that do not have such relationships, the Business Institute is requesting your participation in a brief survey that will help to describe current practices and national trends in contracting. The survey should take about 10 – 30 minutes to complete based upon your number of contracts.
All results of the survey will be reported in aggregate. Only the researchers at Scripps Gerontology Center and Business Institute staff at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) will have access to the data. Aggregate results and key findings will be shared in webinars, conference sessions, reports and other publications that can help CBOs and health care partners inform and improve current practice.
If you agree to participate in the survey and agree to be contacted, the Business Institute staff may follow-up with you to learn more and/or request permission to feature your organization in a case study, webinar, or similar activity. Individual survey responses will not be made public and none of the information you provide will be shared without your explicit consent. In addition, researchers at Scripps may follow up with you confirm responses.
We greatly appreciate your involvement in this brief survey. 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.

*The Business Institute was developed by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and their partners, Independent Living Research Utilization/National Center for Aging and Disability, Partners in Care Foundation, Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley/Healthy Living Center of Excellence, National Council on Aging, Evidence-Based Leadership Council, American Society on Aging, and Meals on Wheels America. The Business Institute is funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation, Administration for Community Living (ACL), The SCAN Foundation, The Gary and Mary West Foundation, The Colorado Health Foundation and The Buck Family Fund of The Marin Community Foundation. The Business Institute supports integration of aging and disability CBOs with the health care system. This integration is often formalized through contracts that engage CBOs or networks of CBOs in providing services or programs on behalf of or directly to health care entities (e.g., hospital, residential long-term care facility, physician practice or group, health care network, managed care organization, accountable care organization (ACO), Veterans Administration, and health insurance plans).
