About the Partnership to Align Social Care—A National Learning & Action Network:

The Partnership to Align Social Care (Partnership) is a group of diverse stakeholders collaborating to co-design a multi-faceted strategy to enable successful partnerships between health care organizations and networks of community-based organizations (CBOs) delivering social care and social services. These partnerships will create the efficient and sustainable ecosystems needed to provide individuals with holistic, person-centered care. The Partnership includes senior leaders from community-based organizations, health plans, health systems, national associations, and federal agencies.

The Partnership aims to align with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Innovation Center Strategy Refresh and aspires to support health and social care delivery system transformation through the evolution of a sustainable, community-centered social care delivery system that enables value-based care.
