RRTCDD 2016 Health and Wellness Series Webinar
WebEx recording is available for viewing “The Experience of and Outcomes for People with I/DD and Their Families in Managed Health Care: Lessons Learned” (Recording) (PowerPoint Slides)
This webinar presents results from a four year evaluation of an integrated care program in which people transferred from fee–for-service Medicaid to managed health care. It will include innovative ways to assess the views of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities ( IDD ) regarding their health and healthcare, outcomes of the transition, and strategies resulting in better health care outcomes. Lessons learned will address the role of continuity of care, care coordination, consumer choice, and family involvement in meeting the health care needs of people with IDD and ways to improve these aspects.
