Blueprint for Complex Care: Opportunities for Philanthropy in Healthcare and Social Services
April 2, 2019 2:00 pm Eastern Time
Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging
When individuals with complex health and social needs encounter the health care system, they often receive care from both medical and social service providers that is expensive, inefficient, and poorly coordinated. Six foundations (The Commonwealth Fund, The John A. Hartford Foundation, Peterson Center on Healthcare, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The SCAN Foundation, and Milbank Memorial Fund) are working together to address this issue and improve the quality and value of care by increasing the adoption of evidence-based interventions that improve quality and lower costs of care for those with the greatest needs.
The recently released Blueprint for Complex Care provides the field with clear, actionable steps for further developing a wide range of efforts aimed at improving the lives of people with complex health and social needs and advancing the field of complex care. This webinar shared the blueprint’s recommendations for strengthening the field, how foundations are using the blueprint in their current and future grantmaking, and how funders can collaborate to improve the lives of those with the most complex needs. Speakers included Mark Humowiecki of National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, Susan Mende of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and Kelly Pfeifer of California Health Care Foundation.
