Building the Business Case: Community Organizations Responding to the Changing Healthcare Environment for Older Adults

The National Coalition on Care Coordination (N3C) sponsored a symposium at
the March 2014 Aging in America Conference of the American Society of Aging.
That symposium, “Building the Business Case: Responding to the Changing
Environment for the Aging Network,” has informed much of the content and
lessons reflected in this brief. This brief is intended to stimulate thinking, to pose questions that catalyze dialogue, and ultimately, to inspire action. Though the primary audience for this
brief is community-based organizations, the larger goal is for this content to have
crossover impact. Any healthcare organization (provider or payer) exploring
partnership, specifically partnership with community providers, would benefit from
engaging with the ideas and reflections in this paper.
