IAGG 2017 session: Innovation in Health Care Delivery for Adults Aging with Disabilities

Check out this symposium on July 23 at 9-10:30 a.m. at the IAGG conference in San Francisco.

The symposium will summarize key findings central to health care delivery for individuals aging with disabilities, including innovative models of care coordination and evidence-based healthy aging programs. First, we present findings from innovative care coordination programs serving adults with physical disabilities and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These demonstrations were funded through the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center (CMMI) Health Care Innovation Award (HCIA) awards. Second, we examine health services appraisal and unmet healthcare needs for adults (age 50 and over) with physical disabilities in a state Medicaid managed care program. Third, we present findings from evidence-based healthy aging programs (Chronic Disease Self-Management and Falls Prevention programs) serving individuals aging with disabilities. Finally, we present findings from a pilot that adapted an evidence-based healthy aging program for adults aging with long-term disabilities acquired earlier in life.
