The May 7, 2012, issue of Modern Healthcare featured an article on how states are using Programs of All Inclusive Care For the Elderly (PACE) as a means to improve care and reduce spending for individuals needing skilled care that have Medicare and Medicaid.
“We believe that the more frailty, the more limitations, the more functional needs, and the more medical complexity an individual may have, the more they need the hands of an integrated provider on a daily if not an hourly basis,” Shawn Bloom, president and CEO of the National PACE Association told Modern Healthcare.
Overall, the article contained many interesting points and praised the quality of care in PACE.
We are pleased to see PACE gaining attention in the media. PACE has seen significant increases over the last 2 years, with more to come over the next 5 years.
Currently there are 166 PACE centers, operated by 81 sponsoring organizations in 29 states that serve over 23,000 PACE participants.
