The goal of the study is to help communities take on responsibility for improving the reliability and efficiency of their eldercare arrangements. It will use the CareJourney data to help eight communities allocate resources to reduce the risks and effects of unnecessary and/or harmful medical services through targeted comprehensive care management, outreach to specific practitioners, improvements in availability and accessibility of supportive services, and other efforts. Deliverables will include a project work plan and final narrative report. The researchers will also produce paper(s) suitable for publication and present findings at national research meetings and to other stakeholder audiences as appropriate, including policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels and other key stakeholders, as part of the deliverables for this grant.
