Dear Reader,

We are very please to invite you to join us for the symposium and launch of the edition titled: SOCIAL IMPACT AND INNOVATIVE MODELS TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUALS WITH INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES AND THEIR FAMILIES THROUGHOUT THE LIFESPAN on March 23, 2017, from 2-5 PM with a reception to follow from 5-7 PM at Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) located at 1500 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA:

The Social Innovation Journal has joined forces with Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC)’s PersonLink, Woods Services, and Bancroft as well as businesses, government, nonprofit experts, academics and leading social innovation practitioners to discuss the most promising innovations in and for the I/DD community. The Social Innovations Journal thanks our sponsors Delta-T Group; General Health Care Resources, Woods Services, Bancroft, and Public Health Fund for their generous support to make this publication and launch conference possible.

Context: There are seven million individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the United States, however only 25% receive services through publicly-funded programs. The other 75% of individuals are supported by their family through informal and private services paid for with their own resources.  As the health and human services system moves to a model of home and community-based services, families who have been supporting their family members at home are turning to the public system for support. Additionally, as caregivers age they need more and different innovative supports to maintain care in the home. Similarly, there are subgroups within the I/DD community with severe medical and behavioral needs whose complex needs are unmet currently in the community and whose interests may be protected by person centered and not monolith regulations. Given these trends, there has never been a time in history where innovative community programs, services and devises are needed to support the I/DD population and their families.

While services and the quality of life for individuals with disabilities has improved as a result of advocacy by families and self-advocates, available innovative technologies and services have not yet reached the I/DD population. There is still much more work to be done to fully support and include individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our society and to support their families in their caregiver role. As an entrepreneurial society, we have yet to embrace and support social innovations and technologies that can help to transform the lives of the I/DD community in healthcare, housing, education and the workforce. 

There has never been a better time than now to present a new vision of how to facilitate and support choice and self-determination for the I/DD community.   This edition and symposium will discuss how we continue to innovate services and products to better support the I/DD community and their families with partnerships between government, public and private sector, as well as highlight innovative practices that demonstrate integration, collaboration, and effective resource allocation

Yours,

Tine Hansen-Turton, SIJ Founder

Dear Reader,

There has been more innovation and advancement in healthcare within the last 50 years than in all human history. Few industry professionals experience as fast, as dynamic and as ever-changing movements and trends as those working within the healthcare space. One group of healthcare professionals is working to ensure that no one gets left behind in the process.

As part of the Convenient Care Association’s (CCA) 10-year anniversary as an industry, the Social Innovations Journal has joined forces with CCA to launch our 30th edition of the Journal and our first launch event of the new year in a new city. In this edition and launch program, we look at the retail-based convenient care clinic phenomenon and what Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen famously coined as one of the most disruptive innovations ever in healthcare. For more than a decade, retail clinic operators have dedicated themselves to ensuring that all Americans have accessible, affordable, high-quality healthcare. These “retail health clinics” have grown exponentially since their introduction to the healthcare space a decade ago. What first existed as only a handful of clinics now extends through 43 states, occupies more than 2,300 locations, employs tens of thousands of retail clinician providers such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, and serves millions of people across the country. Because of retail clinics and the clinicians behind them, Americans now have access to affordable, convenient, and quality care.

For the launch of this edition, Innovations through Retail Health and Consumer-Driven Healthcare, the Social Innovations Journal has partnered with the Convenient Care Association, athenahealth and Public Health Institute to tell the full story of this industry. This event, in addition to documenting the inception and history of the retail clinic movement, will focus on the continual evolution and innovations happening for the future. Convenient care is continually challenging itself and healthcare providers across the nation to ensure access and convenient, quality healthcare services for all people.

RSVP today to join us for this event at the athenahealth’s headquarters on 50 Hawthorne St. in San Francisco on January 12, 2017

The world is on the brink of a revolution regarding how we solve society’s toughest problems. The force capable ofdriving this revolution is ‘social impact investing’ and public/private partnerships, which combined harnesses entrepreneurship, innovation and capital to power social sector improvements.   Similarly, doing good and doing well are no longer seen as incompatible. There is a growing desire to reconnect work with meaning and purpose, to make a difference. This is leading to an increasing supply of people looking for employers with an explicit commitment to improve the world. Additionally, there has been a rapid rise globally in the number of impact entrepreneurs who want to find innovative ways to solve society’s problems, and they are increasingly deploying the methods of business and private capital if that helps them to do so. They include people in the social sector who can now tap the markets for finance in addition to seeking grants from donors, and philanthropists who are willing to fund businesses rather than social sector organizations if that offers a greater likelihood of achieving the social impact they desire. They are leading a shift in philanthropy and partnership from a focus on the act of giving to the impact it achieves.

Along with our Partners and Sponsors BNY Mellon, Patricia Kind Foundation, ImpactPHL, Ashoka, Social Ventures Network and Public Health Management Corporation, Social Innovations Journal is very excited to announce the publication of our first fall 2016 Journal and our 29th edition: Social Innovations in Social Impact Investing & Public/Private Partnerships. The edition and launch event will examine the innovations occurring in the Greater Philadelphia’s Social Impact Industry and Partnerships across the private, government and not-for-profit sectors. 

The Social innovations in Social Impact Investing & Public/Private Partnerships edition will be published at our launch event on October 20, 2016 from 2:00 – 7:00 PM (including reception) at PHMC’s headquarters located at 1500 Market Street, Lower Mezz, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Panel 1: Social Impact Thought Leaders

The motivations and behaviors of investors are shifting as a new generation is coming of age defied as more entrepreneurially self-directed by means of being more socially embedded AND as there is an unfolding struggle between the exchange economy (capital markets) and the sharing economy (goods and services moving toward zero cost).

Moderator:  Nicholas Torres, PSIJ Co-Founder

4:00 - 5:00 PM

Panel 2: Social Impact Executioners

Given that we are moving from an economic model of scarcity to an economic model of abundance, a new governance model is needed to take society into the new paradigm. In this collaborative open-sourced economy, while markets aren't altogether dismissed, or governments left entirely out of the equation, the new movements share a passionate belief of the superiority of peer-to-peer management as the best governing model. A new governing model balance is being defined between government, the private sector, and the community members themselves as we realize the benefits of a near zero margin cost society.

"America has never met a problem it couldn't fix or a challenge it couldn't meet... But too often we are held back by the very systems that were designed to address these problems... If we are going to emerge from these challenging times... we need to reinvigorate government with the spirit of innovation..."  - Michael Bloomberg

Dear Reader,

The public and social sector is changing. To innovate and try new programs and approaches to social sector issues, the public, as well as leaders in government, social impact and mission-aligned investors are demanding new data-driven and evidence-informed social models that are cost-effective, financially self-sustainable, adaptive to feedback and metrics, with clear outcome accountability measures, and the potential for large-scale impact and systems/policy influence. As the government changes its approach to innovation, what does that mean to you wether individually or within your organization?

To address this question and many others, we are very pleased to invite you to join us for the upcoming Social Innovations Journal (SIJ) edition publication and launch event, entitled Social & Public Innovations: A Look at How the Public Sector Uses Data to Innovate, Make Decisions & Drive Policy on November 18, 2016 from 2 - 4:30 P.M. with a reception to follow at Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) located at 1500 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA. Please reserve your ticket here.

For this 29th Edition and Launch event on public sector innovations, the SIJ and edition sponsor Scattergood Foundation has joined forces with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, City of Philadelphia, Department of Human Services, Department of Community Behavioral Health, and the University of Pennsylvania Fels Institute of Government, to look at how the public sector innovates through the use of data. At the edition launch event, businesses, government, nonprofit experts, academics and leading social innovation practitioners will come together to share innovations in local and regional government. When reading this edition and attending the launch, participants will learn "the secret sauce" of how public data is and can be used to innovate within the public sector and what it takes to innovate and partner in  and with government.
