  • Caregiving: What Communities Need to Know
    February 2, 2018 2:00 pm
    Cosponsored with Arizona Age-Friendly Network and Grantmakers In Aging. With few supports and services available to family caregivers, their time, resources, health, and well-being are increasingly strained. No matter where people are in the journey of family caregiving—just beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a care transition, or taking care of a family member full time—having a good framework to help guide both caregivers and communities makes the process easier and will significantly improve health outcomes for care recipients and caregivers alike. This webinar was a conversation with Dana Marie Kennedy, State Director of AARP Arizona, and taught how communities can adapt to the needs of family caregivers and provide the resources needed to support people aging in place.

  • Health, Housing, and Homelessness
    February 2, 2012 1:00 pm
    There is a small subset of individuals who cycle between emergency rooms, hospitals, detox, and other crisis health services. Known as the 5:50 population, these are the 5 percent of beneficiaries who represent 50 percent of costs. These men and women have complex, co-occurring health conditions, limited support networks, and experience homelessness or persistent housing challenges. In a year, communities spend upwards of $60,000 per person in public resources on “band-aid” services that treat symptoms without improving overall health status, since they fail to address the underlying problems that lead to poor health.

  • Developing/Revitalizing Aging and Disability Stakeholder Coalitions
    January 30, 2012 12:00 am
    State governments are making substantial changes to delivery systems that provide services for low-income older adults and adults with disabilities. These changes have potential to better integrate medical care and long-term supportive services for these populations, making care options easier and more efficient for consumers and their family members to access and navigate. Much of the impetus for state program changes is due to an infusion of federal dollars, including funds available from the CMS Innovation Center through the Affordable Care Act. However, to ensure that services are designed and implemented in the most consumer-friendly manner possible, stakeholders from the aging and disability communities must be engaged in program design and oversight processes and need to present their collective voice to be heard by state officials and implementing organizations.

  • A Health Spending Cap: Implications for Medicaid, CHIP, & ACA Implementation
    June 7, 2011 2:30 pm
    Efforts by Congress to rein in the federal budget deficit include a number of plans that significantly reduce spending on key social programs. A recent proposal to cap total federal spending to no more than 20.6 percent of the Gross Domestic Product is attracting a considerable amount of attention. The proposal includes limiting spending on health programs, which would seriously affect the sustainability and affordability of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that federal spending on Medicaid would be cut by $547 billion in the first nine years, a figure that will grow substantially in subsequent decades. Reductions in federal Medicaid spending have major implications for states and their ability to provide health coverage for their low-income residents, as well as their ability to implement the Affordable Care Act. On this call, Robert Greenstein, President of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, discussed the various budget plans before Congress, and their possible impact on Medicaid and other social programs.

  • Child and Adolescent Health and Health Care Quality: Measuring What Matters
    May 3, 2011 2:30 pm
    Health and health care quality measures can provide valuable information about the health status of children and adolescents, as well as the outcomes associated with medical care, policy, and social programs. Despite the fact that the U.S. government currently supports hundreds of data sets and measures through federal surveys and administrative data systems, there is no single data source that can provide valid and reliable indicators about the health and health care quality of children and adolescents.
