Presented by the National Coalition on Care Coordination, ASA and the New York Academy of Medicine
Fee: $20 (Pre-registration required)
Comprehensive care coordination linking home- and communitybased social services with primary and acute medical care is increasingly regarded as the most effective strategy for improving the quality of health care while containing rising costs for medically complex individuals with one or more chronic conditions.
The National Coalition on Care Coordination identifies a personcentered approach that cultivates the individual and family members as integral partners with health and social service providers. This is essential for the development of individualized care plans that are appropriately responsive to each individual’s unique needs, culture, values and preferences. This session will describe how this approach is established and how advocates for health care transformation can incorporate for the benefit of
individuals and their family members.
This session will also illuminate several models of comprehensive care coordination that establish the primacy of the individual and caregivers in the development and execution of the individual’s care plan. Presenters will explore how advocates for health care transformation, program developers, and professional service providers can begin to incorporate this person-centered approach for the benefit of individuals, their family members and other caregivers.
Moderator: Lynn Friss Feinberg, AARP Public Policy Institute.
