Forum: Smarter and More Cost Effective Elder Care Solutions

America is aging – rapidly. Advancing age brings an inherent decline in functional abilities creating vulnerabilities in our individual adaptations. When these vulnerabilities are stressed through disease and disability, the response is less predictable than during earlier stages of life. When these stressors occur in large numbers, our societal infrastructure struggles to adapt. This session will include national health care professionals and organizations that are changing the system.

Program Description
America is aging - rapidly. Advancing age brings an inherent decline in functional abilities creating vulnerabilities in our individual adaptations. When these vulnerabilities are stressed through disease and disability, the response is less predictable than during earlier stages of life. When these stressors occur in large numbers, our societal infrastructure struggles to adapt. This session will include national health care professionals and organizations that are changing the system. The panel will present models of care that have identified highly vulnerable elders, innovated and transformed the healthcare delivery system to meet the needs of these older patients.
The speakers will each summarize their research and activity. There will also be plenty of time for a  Q&A session.
 
Dr. Alan “Chip” Teel
In his book “Alone and Invisible No More”, physician Allan S. Teel describes how to overhaul our eldercare system.  Based on his own efforts to create humane, affordable alternatives in Maine, Teel's program harnesses both staff and volunteers to help people remain in their homes and communities. It offers assistance with everyday challenges, uses technology to keep older people connected to each other and their families, and stays safe.  An underappreciated cost of geriatric care is the caregiver shortages: now and in the future.   Health Care Agencies cannot find staff so working differently is essential.  Having a version of a hospital at-home is needed.  This would include telemedicine, telecare, and interactive video access between the customer and the whole healthcare team.   
Dr. James Rudolph
“The demographic shift in the aging population are going to overwhelm the traditional model in which healthcare is delivered,” notes Dr. James Rudolph.  Dr. Rudolph will present a model of care that focuses on identifying highly vulnerable elders, innovation to improve the healthcare delivery system and improved outcomes that meets the needs of these older patients. Because these models create value for patients, caregivers, and the healthcare system, they are cost-effective for all concerned.  
 
Patty Seybold
Since 2013, spurred by the loss of their local hospital and ER, the Boothbay Region Health & Wellness Foundation ( a group of motivated seniors in rural, coastal Maine) have been evolving their own home-grown wellness social support network. You'll learn: 
1) How important it is for patients/customers to participate in the design and delivery of the services they use
2) How important rich context and high touch are to the success of any such program
3) How little technology is actually needed
4) What are the biggest remaining challenges
5) How varied and complete a customer ecosystem needs to be to be effective.

Speakers    
Dr. Alan "Chip" TeelFull Circle America and Eastern Maine Health System

During his thirty year medical career as a family physician in Damariscotta, Maine Dr. Teel has worked with thousands of older patients in the hospital, at nursing homes, in assisted living homes, and in their own homes, each one leaving a lasting impression and fueling his passion and commitment to speaking  out on the elder crisis facing our communities and our country.

 

Recently appointed the Medical Director for Clinical Systems Innovation at Eastern Maine Health Systems Dr. Teel’s focus will be to integrate primary care with home health, population health, community health and palliative care through the lens of eldercare employing telemedicine. The economics and demographics of eldercare demand urgent and innovative action.

He had developed innovative methods and programs to improve recovery after hospitalization.
