Changing Care for the Frail Elderly: Community Based, Long-Term Care and ACOs

The Alliance and Dr. Joanne Lynn, Director of the Altarum Institute’s Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness, hosted a discussion on reforming care delivery to better support frail, elderly seniors. Currently, Dr. Lynn and the Altarum Institute are looking to test with the CMS Innovation Center “MediCaring ACOs,” which seek to care for America’s rapidly aging senior population by providing a comprehensive approach to medical care, long-term care, and social support services. These ACOs would be organized locally, by geography.

​​Dr. Lynn recently authored an opinion piece published on November 13, 2013 in the Journal of the American Medical Association on “Reliable and Sustainable Comprehensive Care for Frail Elderly People.”  For additional information on Dr. Lynn’s work, please click here.

Joanne Lynn, MD, MA (philosophy and public policy), MS (evaluative clinical sciences), is a geriatrician, hospice physician, health services researcher, quality improvement advisor, and policy advocate who has focused upon shaping American health care so that every person can count on living comfortably and meaningfully through the period of serious illness and disability in the last years of life, at a sustainable cost to the community. She now leads the Center on Elder Care and Advanced Illness for Altarum Institute. Click here for more information about Dr. Lynn.
