Our Mission & Values

The Time is Now. Changing health care systems, changing communities, changing lives.

How can we help you? 

That’s the question Partners in Care Foundation℠ has been asking health care providers, plans and families since the organization was founded nearly two decades ago.

Our mission today is similar to what it was then:

Partners aligns social care and health care to address the social determinants of health and equity disparities affecting diverse, under-served and vulnerable populations.

Our values are to:

  • Provide national leadership as we work respectfully with those we serve and with public and private providers, payers, agencies, and funders.
  • Develop innovations through our efforts focusing on new ways to effectively promote health-producing behaviors and establish supportive services that enable high-risk populations to achieve optimum functioning in community settings.
  • Create impact as we create and scale easily replicable models of care to improve lives and we work for their broad adoption.

Partnership

Partners collaborates with physician networks, health plans, community-based organizations, and federal and state agencies to deliver programs and services that protect and support adults with complex health and social services needs, frail elders, people with disabilities, caregivers and families. Our programs have been demonstrated to significantly reduce costly hospital readmissions, ED visits, and nursing home placements, resulting in improved health outcomes at lower cost through better coordinated care.

Innovation

We believe that health happens at home. Through unique, evidence-based interventions like our HomeMedsSM program, a national, in-home medication review and safety program, we shift the emphasis of health care from catastrophic care to preventative care, reducing costs and enabling adults of all ages, especially seniors, to live with the dignity and independence they deserve. To learn more about this and other solutions, check out our Innovations page.
