LeadingAge’s Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) today released 2 new resources designed to help long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations identify and select telehealth products: a whitepaper and a telehealth selection matrix.
The LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) has released the final product in an updated set of free tools designed to help long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations identify and select electronic health records (EHR) products.
This collection of case studies highlights the impressive work being carried out by pioneers in the field of aging services.
A new resource will help CAST and LeadingAge members prepare for the future. A Look into the Future: Evaluating Business Models for Technology-Enabled Long-Term Services and Supports identifies potential characteristics of the future operating environment for providers of long-term services and supports. It also delineates categories of potential business models, identifies enabling technologies for each model and evaluates how changes in the operating environment would affect these models.
LeadingAge CAST has just released an analysis of state payments for Aging Services Technologies (AST). The analysis shows that 44 states reimburse for Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), 16 states reimburse for medication management and seven states reimburse for home telehealth/telemonitoring. Pennsylvania has the most comprehensive coverage for ASTs in its Telecare program, which includes home telehealth, activity/wellness monitoring, medication dispensing and PERS. New York, South Carolina, and South Dakota also have exemplary reimbursement programs.
In 2010, CAST started publishing reports of the proceedings of the CAST Commission Meetings to keep its stakeholders abreast of the discussions that take place at the CAST Commission. Check out the latest report.
