This evaluation determined whether long-term care coordination provided in the Aging in Place (AIP) program, which included home health care (HHC), made a difference in utilization and cost outcomes compared to patients who received HHC without AIP care coordination.
This study adds to the growing body of evidence about the effectiveness of nurse care coordination.
