As part of the Advancing Resilience and Community Health (ARCH) project, networks of community-based organizations (CBOs) took steps to advance their relationships with healthcare institutions (payers and hospital systems) at a scale that would make a difference in addressing patients’ social determinants of health (SDOH). To better understand the challenges health institutions faced in contracting with CBO networks, the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) partnered with Mathematica to conduct semi-structured interviews with leaders from healthcare institutions that participated in the ARCH project. What we learned about health leaders’ views on addressing SDOH revealed key considerations for future partnerships between health care institutions and CBOs.
