Join Manatt for the Second of Our Imperatives Deep-Dive Sessions on the Topics You Voted Most Important to You.
Strengthening our nation’s long-term care system is a pressing societal issue as growing numbers of older Americans and people living with disabilities or chronic diseases increase demand. The devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people residing in nursing homes and other congregate living settings has accelerated the need to create alternative models for delivering long-term services and supports (LTSS). Whatever their ages, people who need long-term care increasingly prefer to receive it in their homes and communities. With the 65+ population projected to increase 50% by 2030, the time has come to implement solutions that enable older adults and others who need LTSS to maintain their autonomy through greater support from both the private and public sectors.
In a new webinar—the second in our Imperatives series on the topics you voted most important to you—Manatt Health will host a panel discussion on innovations in digitally enabled home-based care models for people who use LTSS. The program will examine the population, payer and delivery system trends driving the growth in “care at home” models—and discuss the opportunities and barriers for LTSS-focused digital health and other technology solutions that support independent living. Key topics will include:
- Population and workforce trends that are driving the growing preference for home-based care, including the disparate impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on older Americans, people with disabilities and the LTSS workforce
- Federal and state policies and payment mechanisms and trends, including those related to digital and telehealth, that are supporting home-based care models and improving coordination of people’s physical health, behavioral health, LTSS and social supports
- Emerging digital technologies that enable home care providers and caregivers to deliver safe, high-quality care at home
- The ways that digital tools are promoting health equity
- How stakeholders can help advance person-centered, equitable care in the home
- Narda Ipakchi, Vice President of Policy, The SCAN Foundation
- Adam Wolfberg, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer, Current Health (a Best Buy Health company)
