Think Tank Subgroups and Leaders
Data Driven Support
This category addresses how data is used to drive more evidence-based decision-making. Ideas in this category aim to educate caregivers and care recipients, keep them informed of best practices, guide them in making decisions, improve the coordination of care, and obtain longitudinal data required to improve pricing and recommendations.
Leader: John O’Leary
Service Evolution and Expansion
This category addresses consumer needs that relate to where, how or when claims dollars can be spent and how this impacts access to care. Ideas in this category aim to increase the number of caregivers in the system, more efficiently distribute available care to match care recipient needs, more efficiently deploy care-related resources, improve access to quality care, and delay the need for care in the first place.
Leader: Bob Hanes
Paying for Care
This category addresses how long term care costs are funded. Ideas in this category aim to help the industry and consumers to find additional ways of financing long term care, more effectively pool their resources, and make receiving financial reimbursement more familiar.
Leader: Vince Bodnar
