This episode of Bright Spots in Healthcare is sponsored by Partners in Care Foundation.

The Partners in Care Foundation aligns social care and health care to address the “Social Determinants of Health” that routinely affect diverse, under-served, and vulnerable populations.

PICF serves as a bridge between medical care and what individuals can accomplish on their own at home, achieving greater equity of conditions and effectiveness of care.

Partners’ evidence-based programs and services have been demonstrated to improve quality of life, help participants avoid suffering, and reduce costly hospital readmissions, Emergency Department visits, and nursing home placements.


For over two decades, the Partners in Care Foundation has been innovating and improving SDOH solutions and driving life-changing, life-saving alignment between social care and health care for those we serve. Please visit for more information.
