Stories from the Field: Lessons of Sharing from the Disability Network Business Acumen Learning Collaborative

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” -Benjamin Franklin

Maneuvering change, developing strategies and implementing solutions can quickly become overwhelming if your organization feels like it is alone in its quest for success. Fortunately most Community Based Organizations (CBOs) have found that connecting and sharing with other CBOs provides critical information and insight as they seek ways to diversify their organization, develop new payment streams, customize services to a new clientele base, meet contractual obligations or otherwise advance their business.

The Disability Network Business Acumen Learning Collaborative works together to develop and implement business-related strategies to state-specific challenges to integrating long term services and supports and healthcare services. Each state team includes at least one state agency and CBO serving persons with disabilities (physical, intellectual and/or developmental). Most also include an integrated healthcare entity or other organization dedicated to the sustainability of CBOs serving people with disabilities. Working together, they serve as an example for how states, health plans and CBOs can enhance business relationships and develop sustainable business paths.

Join us on February 28, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET as representatives from Missouri, New Hampshire, New York and Texas describe how they have shared experiences to help each other advance solutions to resolve common issues.
