Pilot program receives funding

Aging & In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana's (AIHS) proposal to test a model for improving care transitions from an inpatient hospital setting to a home-based setting has been selected by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to receive funding as a Community-Based Care Transition Program under Section 3026 of the Affordable Care Act.

A pilot program with AIHS, Parkview Hospital Randallia and Parkview Regional Medical Center, created Care Transitions of Eastern Indiana in partnership with Yorktown-based LifeStream Services, the Area 6 Agency on Aging, to encompass 22 counties and 10 hospitals in 11 locations. The program has been available since April to qualifying patients at participating hospitals through referral from discharged planners.
