CMS Health Care Innovation Award - Living Rite-A Disruptive Solution for Management of Chronic Care Disease

Program Location: 
Providence, RI
Payer Type: 

The University of Rhode Island’s Living Rite Innovations project received a $14 million grant to improve the health of cognitively challenged adults with chronic diseases and those with Alzheimer's who receive Medicare and Medicaid benefits while reducing the costs of care. The program will integrate the efforts of state agencies, major health systems, educational institutions, disability organizations and service providers to lower costs and provide comprehensive health care for dual-eligible Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries who are over the age of 20. The goal of the program is to create an environment where people will be able to get preventative care and chronic care manangement in a place where they already come for recreation and employment. The new model will use interdisciplinary care management teams as well as the Multiple Health Behavior Change technique to help patients learn how to best manage their chronic diseases.
