Communicating with Medical Providers

As the health care landscape changes, understanding what Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Continuing Care Retirement Communities can and cannot do has become paramount.

Partners in Care

Getting in contact with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other health care providers is a great way to introduce yourself as a potential partner in care. The key to communicating with health care providers is to deliver a clear, concise, and consistent message about the philosophy behind your model of care and how your community can meet a range of needs. CALA has collected tools and resources to help you deliver this message.
