Innovation Session

Harnessing the power of assessment technology: Tracking along the continuum

Tuesday, August 29 | 10:15 - 11:15 a.m. ET | Laurel C-D, 4th Floor

LTSS screenings and assessments are critical to ensuring persons with serious mental illness and intellectual and/or developmental disabilities are placed in the most appropriate setting (e.g., in the community, nursing facility, or hospital) for their long-term care needs. These screenings and assessments are a powerful and effective method for identifying persons with these conditions and providing recommended services to improve their quality of life.

This session focuses on how state agencies can meet CMS requirements by leveraging advanced digital technology to achieve timely and accurate screenings and assessments, enhanced tracking and reporting for program oversight, and operational and cost efficiencies through streamlined paperless processing.

Nursing Facilities: Creating a Pipeline to the Community

Wednesday, August 30 | 1:15-2:15 p.m. ET | Waterview A-B, 1st Floor

With the overarching goal of effectively transitioning individuals back into their communities, states face increased pressure to demonstrate effective pathways that provide people with robust opportunities for informed choice-making, diversion, and smooth reentry to the community from nursing facilities.

Join us for an engaging session to learn about specific and promising LTSS practices implemented in states. Hear how some states are leveraging LTSS screening and assessment data and operations to directly impact their ability to identify residents for education about available services in the community and offer transition services. These best practices also enable states to track the performance of transition efforts.
