Strategies For The Implementation Of Disability Competent Care

Resources for Integrated Care offers this webinar series for providers and health care professionals, front-line staff with health plans and practices, and stakeholders to introduce and explore the many uses of the Disability-Competent Care (DCC) Model. The DCC model is a resource for providers, health plans, and healthcare organizations to enhance capacity to integrate care for adults with disabilities. 

As health care delivery systems are increasingly challenged to meet the expectations of the Triple Aim (improved population health, improved consumer experience, and cost containment), both payors and providers alike are expected to assume greater responsibility for the health, well-being and financial stewardship of all their customers. The result is new delivery systems where care is integrated across providers and settings of care, with a focus on prevention and primary care management. 

In the existing health care delivery system, services for persons with disabilities or functional limitations are piecemeal and reactive. In reality, their needs are both acute and long term, requiring care and support from multiple providers and settings of care. This webinar series aims to help payors and providers better understand and deliver Disability-Competent Care, where the participant’s goals and preferences are the center of the provision of all care and supports.

This series takes a fresh look at topics that were presented in the previous two webinar series, which are available for viewing on the Disability Competent Care page.  We aim to provide participants with updated information and the opportunity to discuss topical questions with leading healthcare professionals and subject matter experts.
