In this episode of “Inside Health Care,” Delia Brand, Director of Alabama Tombigbee Regional Commission Area Agency on Aging (AAA), and Matt Brock, NCQA Communications Director, discuss how NCQA’s Accreditation of Case Management for Long-Term Services and Supports provides a framework for improving the quality of care.
Delia describes how NCQA’s LTSS Best Practices Academy helped Alabama’s 13 AAA’s prepare to apply for Accreditation and how the application process led to better coordination of care. Delia also talks about Alabama AAA’s diverse client population and the benefits of delaying institutional care.
