Through its Pay for Success work, GHHI is advancing cross-sector, outcomes-based financing models to address the social determinants of health through evidence-based interventions. 

 

What is Pay for Success?

Pay for Success (PFS) financing models are cross-sector partnerships in which private investors pay upfront for a social service and then a government, healthcare, or other back-end payer repays the investment if, and only if, predetermined outcomes are met. Learn more about PFS.

GHHI's PAY FOR SUCCESS WORK

Through its social innovation financing work, GHHI is fostering high quality evidence-based models that efficiently connect funding to meaningful health, economic, and social outcomes in order to advance health equity for people in low-income communities.

GHHI is currently leading a cohort of 11 asthma-focused PFS projects with healthcare, service provider, and government partners in jurisdictions across the country. GHHI is a service provider for a PFS project with Johns Hopkins Health System that is currently in transaction structuring phase in Baltimore. In September 2016, GHHI completed five PFS feasibility studies funded by the Corporation for National and Community Services’ Social Innovation Fund. Five additional PFS feasibility studies, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, are underway. Also, GHHI recently received another grant from the CNCS Social Innovation Fund to expand its technical assistance in 2017 to advance PFS projects that address the social determinants of health.
