Issue Briefs Highlight Innovative Approaches Transforming Aging Network
America's health care system is undergoing a period of rapid change and the Aging Network has emerged as a vital partner, providing a comprehensive range of services and supports that have enabled hospitals, MCOs and other providers to bridge the gap between acute care and home and community-based services.
The Network is also leading the way in developing and championing evidence-based programs that have been life-changing for older adults nationwide.
In transformative times like these, it's especially important to capture what's “happening on the ground,” which is why n4a, with funding from ACL, has made it a priority to gather data from AAAs by undertaking periodic AAA surveys. We are pleased to release a series of issues briefs, each containing key trends culled from the 2014 and 2016 AAA National Survey reports as follows:
- Innovative Service Delivery
- Information Technology in Area Agencies on Aging: Special Focus on Regional Networks/Consortia
- Veteran-Directed Home and Community-Based Services
- Evidence-Based Programming
