STATE MEDICAID

The ElderCare Companies have developed a comprehensive array of effective socio-medical and environmental interventions designed to reduce the frequency, severity and costs of falls among the elderly.

 

ElderCare has successfully operated multi-site, multi-year, multi-million dollar fall prevention demonstration projects for Florida and Pennsylvania Medicaid since June of 2000. We have operated similar-but-smaller projects for county and municipal governments in New York and New Jersey since 1996.


In Pennsylvania, Florida and New York we have been able to reduce:

  • injurious falls by 54%
  • fall-related hospitalizations by 55% due to fracture and 64% for all fall consequences
  • nursing home stays by 65%
  • cost-per-case for Medicaid by 57% for nursing homes, 21% for hospitalizations, 32% for rehab and 75% to 80% overall.

In our Medicaid and related projects, we work closely with Medicaid HMOs and with nursing home diversion/dispersion/avoidance programs.

 

The final data of our Florida Medicaid project and Pennsylvania Medicaid project were considered when we were nominated for one national prize in 2005 and won a second national prize in 2006
