  • Young Adult Institute/National Institute for People with Disabilities Network Telehealth: Improving Healthcare for People with Developmental Disabilities Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $149,569

    As people with developmental disabilities age, they face the same complex medical challenges as the general aging population, need more medical supervision, and risk being institutionalized in nursing homes. For this group, the limited nursing services that are available under the current residential model are rapidly becoming inadequate. Young Adult Institute/National Institute for People with Disabilities Network (YAI) aimed to improve health care for people with developmental disabilities living in group or individual residences through deployment of a “telehealth” system.

  • Visiting Nurse Service of New York Establishing an Advanced Illness Management (AIM) Model in a Community-based Setting: Innovation at the Visiting Nurse Service of New York Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $864,837

    This project aimed to improve quality of care and reduce costs for patients with advanced illness by piloting the Advanced Illness Management (AIM) model and evaluating its impact on quality of care provided, hospice admissions, and hospitalization and emergency department use. Although the model improved the quality of care patients received and created additional training opportunities for home care nurses, it did not result in an increase of hospice admission or a reduction in emergency department use and re-hospitalizations.
