Community Based Networks

Community Based Networks helps Community Based Organizations (CBOs) develop the capabilities for contracting with health care organizations to improve the social health needs of their members/patients.

Community Based Networks accomplishes this in three ways:

  • Development - Facilitation of business development between community-based organizations and payers. Customers use the Community Based Networks business development application to locate and match with what payers are funding.
  • Processes - Workflow efficiency is crucial to maximizing cash flow. Community Based Networks establishes Automated Workers to minimize data entry within and across applications, removing programming bottlenecks from intake to exit, and reconciling billing practices.
  • Intelligence - To justify the business case for providing services, Community Based Networks consolidates data from internal and external data sources, conducts analysis, and presents a series of dashboards for stakeholders to pinpoint their impact on the populations they are serving.

Community Based Networks creates the infrastructure connecting health and social care.
