The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is a capitated model of care that provides community-based care to seniors who are eligible for nursing homes. PACE is responsible for primary, acute and long-term-care needs, regardless of the care setting. Key features that are similar to accountable care organizations (ACOs) are comprehensive and coordinated care, integrated financing between Medicare and Medicaid and full accountability for quality and cost of services. PACE combines the elements of a patient-centered medical home and an ACO. It is a proven model of care for hospitals and health systems to consider implementing.
The MHA webinar Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE): An Alternative to Traditional Nursing Home Care will examine successful clinical and financial PACE models, how the concepts of the patient-centered medical home, ACOs and other new population-based models of care can be successfully applied to the senior population.
The webinar is scheduled from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. May 23 and MHA members can register at no charge.
Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
