Aging Brain Care model receives $7.8 million in CMS innovation funding
Date:6/21/2012

our partners in health care delivery at Wishard Hospital, IU Health and the Regenstrief Institute, amongst others. We are confident that patient care will benefit greatly due to studies supported by this award."

Over the three-year period of CMS support, the award recipients estimate that 25 jobs will be created for positions including advanced practice care coordinators, nurses, medical care coordinators' assistants, social workers and a medical director.

The Healthy Aging Brain Center at Wishard is already drawing referrals from across the country. Last month, the Senior Health Implementation Center at the Regenstrief Institute announced that it will broadly disseminate ABC tools, including a how-to manual for clinicians, a dementia symptoms monitor and a resource handbook for caregivers, as well as provide onsite training.

According to the Alzheimer's Association, an estimated 5.4 million Americans -- one in eight older Americans -- have Alzheimer's disease.
