Unite New York is a coordinated care network of health and social care providers. Partners in the network are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. Unite New York is sponsored by Adirondack Health Institute, Alliance for Better Health, Catholic Family Center, and Central New York Care Collaborative.
Joining the network is free of cost for community-based organizations and many organizations that are considered part of the safety net, like community health centers, tribal clinics, and mental health centers.
Unite New York brings together regional Unite Us-powered community networks from across the state. Healthy Together, ADK Wellness Connections, CNYCares Referral Network serve partners together in Albany, Fulton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady, Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, Washington, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oswego, Madison, Oneida, and Lewis counties. The 360 Collaborative network serves partners in Monroe, Wayne, Livingston, Ontario, Seneca, Yates, Steuben, Schuyler, Tompkins, Chemung and Tioga counties.
Healthy Together, sponsored by Alliance for Better Health (Alliance), improves the health of our communities by connecting health providers of all kinds – medical, social, and behavioral – across Albany, Fulton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties. Working together in the best interest of the individuals we are serving, Alliance operates a trusted, centralized referral coordination center – encouraging Healthy Together partners and community members to reach out for help with life challenges, like finding healthy food and a safe place to live. Healthy Together empowers Alliance to cultivate strong and meaningful community partnerships built upon a shared belief that no individual should fall through the cracks.
ADK Wellness Connections
The ADK Wellness Connections network, sponsored by Adirondack Health Institute, launched in October 2018 and covers a 9-county region (Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington counties). There are three Coordination Centers across the network divided up by geographic service area, and each Coordination Center is able to receive Assistance Requests from individuals in need from the ADK Wellness Connections website.
The 360 Collaborative Network
The 360 Collaborative network, sponsored by Catholic Family Center, launched in April 2018. The collaborative has grown through mergers with Your Health Partners of the Finger Lakes, LLC Behavioral Health Community Collaborative, IVMF, HHUNY (Health Homes of Upstate NY), and the RMAPI Adult Mentoring program. In 2019, the NYServes Upstate network, that provides programs and services for veterans and military families, joined the network with support from the Institute for Veterans and Military Families.
We can’t address social determinants of health unless we commit to collaborate. Individuals have needs that can’t be addressed by one person or one organization. A coordinated network that binds the community to create civic value is the only way this can be done. Our network responds to, rather than dictates, community needs by providing services that focus on improving the health of underserved members of our community.
