A Billionaire's Policy Center Aims to Transform U.S. Healthcare. How's It Going? discusses the Peterson Center on Healthcare grants including the "online "playbook" for care of high-need patients."
As the article says, "..Peterson is collaborating with four other foundations on this work: The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The SCAN Foundation and The Commonwealth Fund....High-need patients often struggle to get the "coordinated medical, behavioral and social services they need" to avoid costly hospital visits, according to the center.

An online "playbook" for care of high-need patients, backed by the collaborative of five funders, was unveiled in December 2016, with health system leaders and insurers in mind."
