 In the United States, the largest and fastest-growing population of patients seen at community health centers are those 65 and older. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) provides comprehensive medical and social services to those in our communities who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.  

This session will explore what PACE has brought to their communities, the current state of PACE across the country, the partnerships of PACE and health centers, financing a PACE model, and taking a comprehensive look at existing partnership models and the impact they have had on their older patients. By the end of the session, participants will acquire a comprehensive understanding of the tremendous healthcare impact of PACE and will leave equipped with operational and financial strategies to build successful PACE model and bring this customized care to their communities. 

Faculty include leaders from: 

  • National PACE Association (NPA) 
  • Capital Link 
  • San Ysidro Health 
  • National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC)
