Bright Spots in Healthcare

Oct 21, 2022

The delivery of social care services in connection with healthcare requires new systems to organize the relationships and activities of healthcare payers, providers, community-based organizations (CBOs), and community members. 


This panel will discuss integrating social care into healthcare delivery and the need for the organized delivery of social care services, including care coordination, through a multi-stakeholder health and social care ecosystem, as part of a whole-person approach to health.

Personal and community health outcomes significantly depend on our social, economic, and community conditions. Meeting our communities' social care and health care needs requires strengthening our systems of care and aligning health and social care. The Partnership to Align Social Care aims to achieve precisely this goal. We are a national collaborative that brings together healthcare and community leaders to co-design systems of care that will better meet the health and social care needs of individuals and communities.
