Wellspring Innovative Solutions: Replicating the Model


Many nursing homes are looking for evidence-based models to improve the care they provide to their frail elderly residents. Wellspring is one such model. But if replication of this model is to proceed, Wellspring Innovative Solutions will require support to build its capacity to recruit nursing homes and serve new and existing members. This Picker Program Grant will provide the crucial support needed to attract an able leader for the dissemination effort, develop professional education and training capabilities, establish a formal mentoring program for new alliance leaders, and develop marketing capacities. If the project is successful, a program-related investment will be contemplated for next year to help the organization reach a goal of 18 alliances, of about 10 nursing homes each, by 2005. This level of activity will enable Wellspring to function as a financially independent, nonprofit service business in the field of nursing home quality improvement. Cofunding is being sought.
