Complex Care: Funding Big Problems on a Small Budget
June 6, 2018 2:00 pm Eastern Time
Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging
There is growing recognition that our current health care system often fails people with the most complex health and social needs. Promising approaches exist, but grantmakers, particularly those funding at the local and regional levels, often find the complexity of implementing and scaling new models to be challenging. This webinar taught strategies for funding improvement and innovation in complex care on a smaller budget. The discussion included an overview of The Blueprint for Complex Care (a joint project of the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, the Center for Health Care Strategies, and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement); case studies on how and why to support patient advocacy, data analytics, clinical models of care, cross-sector communication, unconventional partnerships, and workforce development; examples of evidence-based programs that are ready for replication and scaling; and advice on designing sustainable business models and implementation plans. Speakers included Mark Humowiecki of National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs and Loren Pogir of Transforming Care Partners.
