Healthcare organizations are increasingly partnering with community-based organizations (CBOs) to address patients’ health-related social needs such as nutrition, housing, and transportation. These partnerships can help integrate services for people with complex needs, but health care and social service organizations often struggle to establish partnerships and contracts given their different structures and financial resources.
Access the ROI Calculator for Partnerships to Address Social Determinants of Health (ROI Calculator) — designed to assist CBOs and their health care partners to explore, structure, and plan financial arrangements to fund social services for people with complex needs.
The ROI Calculator for Partnerships to Address Social Determinants of Health is a tool designed to help CBOs and their health care partners explore, structure, and plan financial arrangements to fund social services for people with complex needs. The tool allows health systems, payers, medical providers, social service providers, and CBOs to determine the overall return on investment from integrating social services with medical care under different payment models.
This Better Care Playbook webinar describes the application of the ROI Calculator to health care organizations and CBOs. It features a case example of a Washington State CBO that used the tool to quantify the value of their services when developing a partnership with a Medicare Advantage plan.
