Thank you for your interest in the OPTIMISTIC model of care. Our strategies for improving long-term care (LTC), transitional care, and palliative care have been vigorously tested and proven effective during our demonstration projects funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) Center for Innovation. These projects have verified that the OPTIMISTIC model can have an impact on Medicare spending, significantly reducing:
• avoidable hospitalizations
• all-cause hospitalizations
• per-resident costs on all-cause emergency room visits and
• per-resident costs on all-cause hospitalizations
Anticipated Offerings for 2017
We are actively working to make these benefits available to nursing facilities across the country. The OPTIMISTIC team is investigating a variety of packages to make the program flexible and adaptable to your facility’s needs and desired level of involvement from OPTIMISTIC team members. We anticipate that these offerings will be available in 2017, so contact us or check back for updates!
