CBOs Key Partners in Keeping Populations Healthy

Shoshanah Brown, CEO of AIRnyc, recently submitted a letter to the editor to Crain’s New York, “An Overlooked Way to Stay Out of the Hospital“. New York eHealth Collaborative completely agrees that community partners are key to improving the health of the entire population.

The Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) continues to connect more and more providers and community-based organizations in every corner of the state. Community-based organizations provide a wide range of critical services that directly affect health outcomes, including the management of chronic illnesses and prevention of serious complications—and are key partners in keeping the population healthy.

Our 2020 Roadmap includes enhancing efforts to support value-based care and CBOs and envisions expanding the infrastructure built to move clinical information to include social determinants of health so that together we can achieve better health for all.
