MediCaring Accountable Care Communities for Frail Older Adults
The nation’s upcoming and transformative “age wave” will require more far-reaching and rapid innovations in policy, workforce training and health care delivery than exist today. Our speaker is Holly Stanley MD, a career geriatrician and currently a Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness (CECAI) of the Altarum Institute, for an introduction to the gaps in care of frail older adults and how the MediCaring Accountable Care Community initiative can provide higher quality care at a lower per capita cost. The constellation of improvements that form the basis of this model are congruent with the goal of improving access to long-term services and supports, which is one of the 4 areas targeted by the Sixth White House Conference on Aging. The Altarum Institute is focused on solving complex systems problems to improve human health, integrating research, technology, analysis, and consulting skills. Dr. Stanley is a graduate of the University of Florida College of Medicine. She is a geriatrician with more than 30 years’ clinical experience and program development in diverse settings, including academia, the Veterans Administration, and private practice, which has provided her a bird’s eye view of what is broken in health care delivery to frail seniors and an understanding of how it could be better. Her move from clinical practice to Altarum is motivated by a desire to be part of the mission of making things better.
