EFFECTIVE PARTNERSHIPS BETWEEN COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATIONS AND HEALTHCARE: A POSSIBLE PATH TO SUSTAINABILITY

Prepared by Meals on Wheels America and Quantified Ventures. Developed with the support of Nonprofit Finance Fund’s Pay for Success Initiative and The Social Innovation Fund. In 2017, Meals on Wheels America and Quantified Ventures embarked on a new initiative with a large healthcare company via its national Medicare Advantage (MA) plan. This presented an important opportunity for Meals on Wheels America to scale its service delivery to homebound seniors, and for the MA plan to develop a new home-delivered meal benefit in conjunction with other supportive services for its enrollees. This white paper examines key issues that are likely to influence the ability of other community-based organizations (CBOs) to effectively partner with health plans or health systems to finance innovation and enhanced service delivery.

The Power of Connection: Reversing Social Isolation in Rural America

This report from Tivity Health examines the public health crisis posed by social isolation in the lives of older adults, particularly those living in rural places. Social isolation--a condition defined by the lack of meaningful relationships or social engagement and exacerbated by various physical and societal factors--is now recognized as actively dangerous to health and well-being. It can raise the risk of premature death by almost 30 percent, is as harmful as obesity or physical inactivity, and is a demonstrated risk factor in its own right. The report captures proceedings and policy recommendations from the Tivity Health 2018 Connectivity Summit on Rural Aging.
