Home-Based Primary Care

We are researching more effective ways to care for seniors at their homes, putting their needs first and improving access to high-quality, affordable healthcare

What we're doing

We are researching ways to create a healthcare system that puts senior’s needs first and improves access to high-quality, affordable healthcare for our nation’s aging population. In one collaboration with the MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s Medical House Calls Program, the Institute is determining how to take a successful program and help it reach increased numbers of patients with a sustainable infrastructure. In addition, we are working with national leaders and policymakers to leverage the data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation's successful Independence at Home Demonstration, which we hope will lead to a new Medicare benefit for the most chronically ill seniors in our country so they can age successfully in a place of their choosing.
