Developed by Partnership for Healthy Outcomes
Bridging Community-Based Human Services and Healthcare
This resource is intended for community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide human services and healthcare organizations currently engaged in a partnership. For the purposes of this tool, partnership is defined as a structured arrangement between a healthcare organization and nonprofit or for-profit community-based organization to provide services to low-income and/or vulnerable populations.
The objective of the PATH is to help partnering organizations work together more effectively to maximize the impact of the partnership. As your partnership continues serving the community, open and honest dialogue around strengths, gaps, challenges, and opportunities is essential for partners to stay aligned, focus communications, prioritize changes, leverage opportunities, identify needs, and more.
