The landscape in services to improve the quality of care for older adults and persons with disabilities by community based organizations is prompting a new business model emerging around us. Your organization’s future and financial viability will rely in part on mastering this new knowledge, and adapting to new ways of delivering on your mission. 

This educational program, offered by the American Society on Aging (ASA) and funded by a grant from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and the Aging & Disability Business Institute at n4a, is designed to help you and your CBO overcome one of the biggest challenges in this transformation – the major challenges and obstacles presented by data and technology management. This program is another building block in the work being done by ACL, n4a, ASA and other partner organizations to help you and other CBO leaders build and strengthen partnerships between community-based organizations (CBOs) and the health care system. 

This three-hour program design includes presentations and discussions with experts and practitioners working to advance the use of technology to capture and report data that ultimately demonstrates improved overall health and well-being of older adults and persons with disabilities.  We encourage the participation of CBO leadership teams, and individuals are welcome too, to hear from CBOs and industry partners who are working on strategies for data collection and exchange. Participants will learn about the process for deciding what data is actually needed by their organizations and they will hear from experts on resources that are available, or soon will be available, to guide teams through the process of capturing the work of social services into measureable and understandable data components that will translate into reimbursement for services delivered.
