Join us for a discussion of two trailblazing programs that are addressing the care needs of the most vulnerable and seriously ill. This session explored how each program works, how palliative care can be effective in addressing disparities and social determinants of health, and how grantmakers can play a vital role.
On this webinar, participants learned key insights into the prospects for increasing health care access, advancing health equity, and improving the delivery system. Participants heard innovative messaging research that suggests how to engage the broadest possible audience on these critical issues.
Participants learned key highlights, and recommendations from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report, “Integrating Social Care into the Delivery of Health Care: Moving Upstream to Improve the Nation’s Health.”
Kimberly Johnson, Director of the Duke Center for REACH Equity and Associate Professor of Medicine at Duke University, and Cara James, President and CEO of Grantmakers In Health, discussed the critical challenges communities of color face in accessing serious-illness and palliative care.
During this webinar, attendees learned about coverage pathways for testing and treatment, Medicaid strategies that support providers, and state budget considerations.
Participants learned more about how seriously ill persons and their caregivers are being affected, the short- and long-term repercussions for health access and disparities, the implications for end-of-life care and grieving, and what providers and health systems can do.
During this time of creative and flexible grantmaking, funders are considering working with community development financial institutions to advance capital through low-interest to no-interest loans in order to help providers weather the economic disruptions caused by the pandemic.
On this webinar, leaders in the immigrant rights movement discussed how philanthropy can increase grantmaking dollars, shift grantmaking practices, embrace risk, and assert leadership to meet the challenges of this moment.
During this webinar, speakers shared lessons learned from the formal evaluation of the Consumer Voices for Innovation Project and from the grantees themselves.
Policies for Those Who Care: Investing in Systems That Support Family Caregivers was held on March 21, 2019 in Washington, D.C.
This webinar reviewed the range of state health care initiatives being proposed by governors, including efforts to expand health insurance coverage, address the affordability of health care, lower the cost of prescription drugs, tackle social determinants of health, increase access to behavioral health services, and more.
How can foundations best support health care delivery system transformation? Funders discussed how pairing evidence analysis with public deliberation can help stakeholders understand the relative value of care options and take actions that will improve access for patients while reducing costs throughout the system.
In this webinar, participants discussed the recently proposed “public charge” rule would allow federal officials to consider immigrants’ use of Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy Program, and several housing programs in determining whether to deny entry into the United States or make adjustments to legal permanent resident status. Listeners learned more about the proposed rule and discussed ways that funders can take action.
As part of our collaborative Invitation to Innovation initiative, Grantmakers In Aging and Grantmakers In Health cosponsored a monthly series of funders-only discussions focused on the challenges of and opportunities for improving care for people with complex health and social needs.
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.
