As national leaders in changing the face of healthcare, Partners is proud to work closely with other organizations towards achieving shared goals.
The Evidence-Based Leadership Council
Partners is a founding member of the Evidence-Based Leadership Council (EBLC), a collaborative of health innovation leaders bringing a better quality of life to more than half a million older adults across America. With health education program development and dissemination expertise, EBLC works at a national level to deliver health self-management, medications management, physical activity, falls prevention and behavioral health programs. EBLC provides the infrastructure supporting community-based organizations across the country as they scale up to meet the growing demand for these programs, and advocates for expanded funding to proliferate this vital work.
Partners is a founding member of the Aging and Disability Business Institute (Business Institute). It is led by The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) in partnership with the most experienced and respected organizations in the aging and disability networks. Together, these organizations provide community-based organizations (CBOs) with the tools and resources to successfully adapt to a changing health care environment, enhance their organizational capacity and capitalize on emerging opportunities to diversify funding. Serving as the national focal point to build the business acumen of CBOs, the Business Institute focuses on building skills and knowledge across business disciplines, while looking ahead to the future of aging and disability services.
The overarching vision of this initiative is to improve the health and well-being of America’s older adults and people with disabilities through improved and increased access to quality services and evidence-based programs. Such access can help older adults and people with disabilities live with dignity and independence in their homes and communities. Building the business capacity of aging and disability CBOs, enabling them to effectively contract with health care payers, will ultimately lead to improved quality of life for older adults and people with disabilities through better integration and coordination of a wide array of medical and social services and supports.
