The Financial Sustainability Workbook is intended to serve as a practical tool for collaboratives that are thinking about ways to diversify their funding with the ultimate goal of sustaining innovations in health care delivery and improving population health.
Based on decades of technical assistance, the Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC) developed the Sustainability Framework© to describe the fundamental characteristics and capacities associated with long-term viability and lasting community impact of community health system development work. The Financial Sustainability Workbook expands and aligns the foundational work of the framework, which describes nine elements that help to position an organization or program for sustainability, by focusing explicitly on funding diversification.
The workbook is broken into sections on
- Identifying financial resources in the local system
- Community examples of funding innovations
- Engaging with payers to create new funding streams
Each section is filled with hands-on activities and practical questions to assess readiness and capacity, apply new concepts and ideas to the local context, identify viable opportunities, and move from mindset development to action.
