Altarum's Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness has developed MediCaring Communities, to improve services for elderly Medicare beneficiaries through longitudinal care planning, better-coordinated and more desirable medical and social services, and local monitoring and management of a community’s quality and supply of services.
