Amarasingham, R., Xie, B., & Karam, A. (2018, January). Using community partnerships to integrate health and social services for high-need, high-cost patients. Washington, DC: The Commonwealth Fund.

Year: 2018


This brief profiles and classifies community partnership initiatives to understand common challenges and identifies solutions. The authors identified five common challenges: inadequate strategies to sustain cost-savings, improvement, and funding; lack of accurate and timely measurement of return on investment; lack of mechanisms to share potential savings between health care and social services providers; lack of expertise to integrate multiple data sources during health care or social services provision; and lack of a cross-sector workflow evidence base.
