Article Series on Developing Business Acumen

July 6, 2017

A new Aging Today article entitled, "Whistlestop takes a human-centered, measured approach to managed care," highlights a nonprofit community-based organization and how it is partnering with healthcare provider and payers to meet growing demand for services. Whistlestop is a community-based organization that promotes the independence, well-being and quality of life for older adults and people living with disabilities.

This article is part of a series in Aging Today designed to help to prepare, educate and support community-based organizations and health care payers to provide quality care and services. The series is a collaboration between the American Society on Aging (ASA) and National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) for the Aging and Disability Business Institute, funded by The SCAN Foundation, The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Administration for Community Living, the Gary and Mary West Foundation, the Colorado Health Foundation, and the Marin Community Foundation, and housed within n4a.
