LTC Institute is asking for your complaints

The TRECS Institute, a non-profit dedicated to improving the care of seniors, with support from the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) has announced the launch of a national, grassroots initiative designed to identify and address “No Brainers” within our long-term care system.

The goal of this initiative is to identify “No Brainers,” defined as any practice that negatively effects the quality of care in long-term care facilities, and to estimate the overall negative economic impact they have on our healthcare system.

All submissions meeting the criteria will be further reviewed by a panel of clinical experts to confirm the quality of care implications. The economic implications of each approved submission will also be reviewed by Fellows at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania to provide estimates of the negative cost implications of each submission. overall negative economic impact they have on our healthcare system.

Following the review of all submissions, a One-Day Invitation Only Summit will be held at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics on Friday, November 30, 2018.

To find out more about this initiative or submit what you believe to be “No Brainer” specific to the long-term care system, visit the TRECS Institute’s web site and follow the prompts for the “No Brainer” Initiative, www.thetrecsinstitute.org

All submissions identifying a “No Brainer” should be emailed to NBI@TheTRECSInstitute.org.
