Step-by-Step Virtual Learning Communities

Our Sustainable Strategies for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded (RWHAP) Community Organizations team is pleased to offer a free, four-part virtual learning community series, Step by Step: Preparing ASOs/CBOs to Contract for Pay with the Health Care System.

This learning community will teach participants how to:

  1. Understand the health care landscape and the opportunities it presents for AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) and Community Based Organizations (CBOs)
  2. Build a business case for creating partnerships with the health care sector
  3. Build financial acumen
  4. Utilize effective marketing and communications strategies

Who should take part?

Ryan White-funded ASOs and CBOs that are:

  • looking to enhance their financial sustainability
  • interested in learning about various partnership models
  • seeking fundamentals for how to make the business case for ACO services
  • exploring how to establish the cost of services and competitive pricing
  • investigating methods to market and communicate organizational value

What is the format?

Each 90-minute virtual session will:

  • guide participants through moving beyond linkage/referral agreements to contracting for pay with the health care system
  • feature a thought-provoking presentation by experts
  • include time for a live Q&A and discussion with participants and instructors

Participants will be asked to complete short inter-session assignments related to each module and report out to the learning community. This approach will allow participants to share their experiences, barriers, challenges, and successes with like-minded organizations within their region.
