“The work that PACE programs across the country are doing is vital to enabling seniors to age in place,” says Robbie Felton, CEO and co-founder, Intus Care. “We are proud to be part of creating a podcast with John for and about those involved in PACE. We hope to spread further awareness about the great work PACE is doing, as well as to empower PACE organizations with greater knowledge about how they can continue to improve the care they provide.”
PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) programs coordinate and provide all needed preventive, primary, acute, and long-term care services so older individuals can continue living in their communities. The National PACE Association (NPA) supports 144 member PACE organizations serving over 58,000 participants across 30 states through a mix of advocacy, education, communications, analysis, and data services.
Intus Care currently works with over 25 PACE Programs in 11 states who are utilizing their predictive analytics platform to optimize care for their older adult participants. Intus Care has also entered a Letter of Understanding with the National PACE Association to pursue a strategic partnership.
