Healthy Partnerships in Healthcare Mean Everyone Benefits

My family collectively rolls their eyes whenever they hear me say “Let’s not recreate the wheel.” But practically speaking, partnering with another group already in a similar healthcare space makes a lot of sense, especially with resources stretched to the limit. This week in the HIN Weekly Update, we talk about several beneficial partnerships — health coach and client, disease management organization and community group, the federal government and small town. Two federal programs in particular will give some communities the financial legs to foster a drug-free environment and others the resources to create one-stop shopping for long-term care advice. Who knows? Maybe these grants will create a future partner for your organization.

We also ask you to partner with us and take our e-survey on caregiver support and education . Respond by this Friday, August 31 and get a free summary of the results. Or, just tell us about collaborations that are working for you by emailing
