ABSTRACT
Chronic illness combined with functional impairment often results in an increased need for medical care and supportive long-term care (LTC) services. Navigating the health care system is challenging and complex, and even more so for patients with complex needs. Traditional fee-for-service care does not support and facilitate coordination and collaboration between providers and service settings. In New York State, managed LTC, a model of coordinated care for the chronically ill, endeavors to provide a bridge between primary, acute, home and community-based, and institutional LTC services for a medically complex and functionally frail nursing home eligible population.

f1-hcfr-27-1-033: Continuous Care Management for All VNS CHOICE Program Members

Mentions: VNS CHOICE focuses on member choice by including members and their families in the development of a care plan that reflects their care preferences and willingness to use substitute services, such as home delivered meals and adult day care, to the extent possible. Care planning and collaboration begins from the point an individual enrolls in the program, and continues through the member's enrollment period. Through a cycle of regular assessment and reassessment, care managers address changing medical and LTC needs and focus on efficient use of resources, prevention strategies, promotion of independence and autonomy, and close monitoring and management of chronic diseases (Figure 1).
