Priorities for the Field

Better Care for Complex Needs: Priorities for the Field
To improve the health outcomes and daily lives of individuals in the United States with the most complex care needs, five foundations — The Commonwealth Fund, The John A. Hartford Foundation, Peterson Center on Healthcare, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and The SCAN Foundation — are working together to accelerate health system transformation. The Playbook, developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, represents one step toward this transformation. The Playbook, which was launched in December 2016, explores the challenges facing adults with complex health and social needs and provides evidence-based or experience-informed ideas about how to address those challenges. In compiling this body of work, the IHI team has reviewed, curated, and created over 150 resources including peer-reviewed journal articles, case studies, step-by-step guides, and practical guidance. Through this process, the team has identified priorities for the emerging field that funders may consider as they explore opportunities to improve care for people with complex health and social needs. This webinar helped participants learn more about the development and evolution of The Playbook along with five priorities for this emerging field.
