CTuJ2 - Integrated Models to Support an Aging Population


Aug 29, 2017 1:30pm ‐ Aug 29, 2017 3:00pm

Description

In the rapidly changing healthcare market, FQHCs are well positioned to act as a 'node' for the delivery of integrated care, especially to support the growing, vulnerable aging population eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare benefits - dual eligible patients. Since older adults are among the nation's vulnerable populations affected by chronic disease, FQHCs have an opportunity to increase the number of older adults they serve and provide them with critical self-management services. Enabling older adults to age in community-based settings is recognized as a top priority for public policy and health leaders. The integrated care model already common at FQHCs is well suited for serving this population. This session will provide an overview of the demographic trends that will lead to a marked increase in the number of older patients at FQHCs over the next few years as well as best practices for serving this population. We will focus on a wide range of models that are currently serving dual eligible Medicare and Medicaid patients including the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) model. The panel will also touch on how to source the capital needed to support these models.

  • - Understand how FQHCs can better prepare for serving older adults.
  • - Understand the features of the PACE model and how it works.
  • - Identify potential sources of capital to add a PACE or similar program to your FQHC.
