The Impact of Financial Incentives on Setting of Care and Outcomes for Older Adults with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias

This breakfast is hosted by the Pitt Nursing Health Services and Policy Research Group.

New York state recently transitioned from fee-for-service delivery of long term services and supports to a managed long term care model that shifted the responsibility for costs to managed care plans, creating a large financial incentive for plans to keep enrollees out of nursing homes. This natural experiment creates an opportunity to examine whether financial incentives can shift the setting of care for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias from institutional settings to home and community-based settings, and the implications for patient outcomes.

Guest speaker is Jordan Harrison, PhD, RN; Harrison is an associate policy research at RAND Corporation whose work focuses on the impact of workforce inputs and policies on health care quality.

For questions or to RSVP, email Grant Marsolf at grm32@pitt.edu.

Tuesday, January 14 at 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
