Working out Logistics in an Integrated Care Model Between APS and Capacity Evaluation Provider

| NCCD

An innovation project was funded to support enhanced partnership between APS and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). The partnership increased the rate of capacity evaluations for the community, and an evaluation of the project generated insights into the challenges of such partnerships. The purpose of this presentation is to share information about the findings related to factors that make this partnership work. Attendees can expect to learn key barriers to partnership even when a provider and funding are available, practical strategies to support successful partnership, and factors to consider when designing a partnership.
