MAC’s Living Well Center of Excellence (LWCE) and a regional hospital are partnering to determine real time benefits and cost savings of evidence-based programs. Every health care entity is focused on their patients and cost of care.  Maryland’s Health Information is tracking hospital and emergency department costs at 3 and 6-month pre-/post- participation in a chronic disease self-management education, falls prevention, or PEARLS program to document meaningful cost-savings/improvement in health.

This presentation was featured at the 2018 National Center for Healthy Aging Annual Meeting.
