The Commonwealth Fund State Long-Term Care Scorecard, Phase 1: Laying the Foundation


Long-term care, which encompasses a wide range of services, from home care to nursing homes, is largely paid for by Medicaid—making it an extremely important issue for states. Having established the need for and feasibility of creating a state long-term care scorecard, the project team will take the first steps in developing one. With input from a national advisory committee, the investigators will: 1) describe what a high-performing long-term care system would look like; 2) develop a conceptual framework for the scorecard and identify and define the indicators needed to assess current performance; and 3) begin development of a survey that will be used to fill gaps in existing data sets. This work will lay the foundation for subsequent development of the scorecard, for which funding will be sought in July 2010. The SCAN Foundation will provide 50 percent cofunding.
