With the closure of nursing homes and long-term care facilities, hospitals and health systems need options to care for seniors. Dually eligible frail seniors are one of the most complex cohorts with multiple comorbidities, frequent hospital admissions and readmissions, and expensive care needs that span acute, post-acute and long-term care. Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) programs are a model of care that provides community-based care to seniors regardless of whether they have primary, acute or long-term care needs. The MHA webinar Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE): An Alternative to Traditional Nursing Home Care will explore the value proposition for PACE partnerships.
The webinar faculty will:
- Outline the philosophy, services provided, structure and financing of PACE programs.
- Describe how hospitals and health systems partner with local PACE programs to support and enhance senior care.
- Share case studies explaining the value of the partnerships between providers and PACE programs.
The webinar is scheduled from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. May 23 at no cost to MHA members. Members are encouraged to register by close of business May 22.
Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
