ASA's Contributions to the
Aging and Disability Business Institute

The Aging and Disability Business Institute's mission is to build and strengthen partnerships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and the health care system—a vision intended 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.

hosted by n4a

The Aging and Disability Business Institute focuses on preparing, educating, and supporting CBOs and health care payers to collaborate and provide quality care and services. On this page you will find information and resources produced by ASA through this grant including web seminars, articles from ASA's bimonthly newspaper, Aging Today, our quarterly journal, Generations, blog posts and more.

The Aging and Disability Business Institute is funded by The SCAN Foundation, The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Administration for Community Living, the Gary and Mary West Foundation, the Marin Community Foundation, and the Colorado Health Foundation. Under this grant, ASA is collaborating with n4A; other partners include Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU)/ National Center for Aging and Disability, Partners in Care Foundation, and Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley/Healthy Living Center of Excellence.

Managed Care Field Guide

ASA is pleased to offer a new field guide as a supplement to our quarterly journal, Generations. The field guide features articles from numerous experts and explores the landscape of managed care: what it is, why it is necessary, and how community-based organizations (CBOs) and healthcare entities are establishing partnerships and creating new opportunities. Case studies illustrate lessons CBOs have learned in their journeys through managed care. Read it here.

New Aging and Disability Business Institute Blog Post

graphic

In a new Aging and Disability Business Institute blog post, Nora Super, Chief, Programs & Services, n4a, and Director, Aging and Disability Business Institute, invites organizations to participate in a major survey addressing how community-based organizations across the country are partnering with health care payers and providers at an ever-increasing pace, coming together to bridge the worlds of medical care and social supports to achieve the Triple Aim of better care, improved health, and lower costs.

 

Capturing Lessons Learned from Trailblazers in Integrated Care

This supplement to Aging Today was conceived to capture lessons learned from trailblazers in the aging and disability networks, to address common pain points, to share breakthrough strategies in business and partnership development and educate individuals and organizations new to the integrated care space. 
This work is crucial because when community-based organizations (CBO) and the healthcare system work together, older adults and people with disabilities get the coordinated care that allows them to live with dignity and independence in their homes and communities for as long as possible. View the supplement from the September–October 2017 issue of Aging Today.
