Expanding a Comprehensive Care Program to Address Social and Cultural Needs of Urban Seniors at High Risk of Hospital Admission (AcademyHealth ARM 2016)


The delivery and financing systems for medical care, public health, and social and community services are powerful determinants of health and wellbeing for families and communities across the U.S.  Unfortunately, these systems interact in complex and often poorly understood ways through fragmented funding streams, organizational relationships, information flows, and governance and decision-making structures. This session will feature new studies underway through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Systems for Action (S4A) Research Program to test multi-sector strategies for integrating delivery and financing systems to improve population health.
Featured speakers from the S4A Collaborating Research Centers:
Nir Minachemi, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
