Created by the Camden Coalition, the Partnership to Align Social Care, and the Aging and Disability Business Institute, the toolkit offers a deep dive into leading contracting practices to effectively and efficiently address health-related social needs (HRSNs). Divided into four modules, each highlights the essential elements of contracting between healthcare and community partners, and features leading practices and resources from the field. Those modules are:

  • Addressing the complex needs of older adults through strong CBO and health plan partnerships
  • Designing the payment structure: A health plan’s guide to paying CBOs and CCHs for social care
  • Defining core activities: Developing an effective scope of work for contracted partners
  • Operationalizing contracts: Improving contracting implementation and collaboration
