Bringing managed care home to the long-term care population.

Abstract

Managed care has been proposed as a solution to the problems facing long-term care: its high costs, bias towards nursing homes, lack of coordination with acute and primary care, and inflexible service delivery. Kodner and Kyriacou (2003) argue that home care agencies may have considerable advantages in creating managed care systems for this population over traditional managed care organizations because of the experience home care organizations have in caring for older adults as well as people with disabilities. Although home care agencies are likely to better understand the needs of the long-term care population, they may lack the expertise and organizational resources to develop successful managed care organizations. Addressing these deficiencies will be key in order for home care organizations to successfully operate as managed care providers.
