Interorganizational factors affecting the delivery of primary care to older Americans.
Kaluzny, A D
OBJECTIVE: To discuss different types and forms of interorganizational linkages involved in the provision of primary care to older Americans, along with their distinguishing characteristics. RESEARCH STRATEGY: To take advantage of these linkage characteristics. The strategy requires a partnership with health services organizations and providers actually involved in the provision of services along with a planned sequence of activities involving hypotheses and methods development, intervention trials, and finally, demonstration and implementation. CONCLUSION: Because older Americans are frequent users of health services, their need for continuity and access provides an opportunity to examine changes to the delivery system and to monitor the system's capability for meeting their healthcare needs.
