Community-Based Care

Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the healthcare system has been transitioning away from a traditional fee-for-service acute care model to a greater focus on community based preventative and disease management care. Having recognized this early on, The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing has been on the leading edge of research in community based care. We have focused significant resources on developing and researching care platforms for providing gerosensitive care in the community, partnering with primary care, home health and hospice agencies, social service agencies and other care providers in order to advance research and quality of care for the older adult.
