Webinar: More Than Just a Partnership--a Hospital and CBO Collaboration

December 6, 2017

Register for December 13 webinar.

Peninsula Regional Medical Center and MAC, Inc., (Maintaining Active Citizens) Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and its Living Well Center of Excellence provide support for patients ready to return home through home- and community-based programs and services to help reduce hospital readmissions.

This webinar will describe the value this partnership brings to the AAA, the healthcare system, providers and, most importantly, to the people being served. Presenters will describe how the relationship began; the value a community-based organization (CBO) adds to service delivery and improved health outcomes; the types of patients who can be helped; the culture change needed to make the partnerships work; and the roles of the healthcare system and the CBO.

Leigh Ann Eagle, director of the health & wellness program at MAC, Inc. and executive director of the Living Well Center of Excellence; Katherine Fiddler, executive director for Population Health Services at Peninsula Regional Medical Center; and Sue Lachenmayr, state program coordinator for the MAC, Inc. Living Well Center of Excellence.

Learning objectives:

- Identify key strategies for establishing healthcare/CBO partnerships;
