Wiener, J.M (2009, Mar 09) Long-Term Care: Options in an Era of Health Reform. Presented at the Alliance for Health Reform Session on Long-Term Care hosted by Alliance for Health Reform.
Long-Term Care: Options in an Era of Health Reform
In this presentation, Dr. Wiener (a Senior Fellow at RTI) looks at why the long term care is important and the fact that system is currently broken.
The presentation looks at various ways it could be reformed, including looking at, the healthcare workforce, finance, the service delivery system and quality of care.
Dr. Wiener concludes with:
- Long-term care is not the centerpiece of health reform, but it can and should play a role
- Our day will come
- Comprehensive reform will cost money, but low-cost options can make contribution
