Over the last 5 years EHF has been engaging with a group of public and private funders, led by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (within HRSA). EHF was able to participate in an aligned funding effort to support high risk, rural older adults through care coordination at 4 sites in 3 counties. The fun, and challenging, part of this project has been bringing in Molina from the beginning to build this on the health home platform for sustainability. The link below features a couple of the public-private partnerships including this one.
As a side note, earlier this month was our annual meeting. It was the largest one yet, with over 100 participants from about 70 organizations. The good news is the group keeps meeting in the current administration (it was an Obama White House initiative in the beginning). The bad news is the next potential aligned funding opportunity might not be until 2020.
