Factors Influencing Receipt of Long-Term Care Services and
Supports in Home and Community Settings
This study examined what differentiates Connecticut residents who receive long-term services and supports (LTSS) in the community versus in nursing homes, and identified ways these findings may be used to increase efficiency and potentially reduce costs. Possible influences included: characteristics of the individuals and the nursing homes; the transition planning/process; services available in the community, including informal family supports; and payor source of LTSS.
The PRI committee approved the draft study scope on April 13, 2016. An informational public hearing was held on the study on September 21, 2016.
On December 7, 2016, the committee voted unanimously to approve the PRI staff findings and recommendations report as presented by the study staff. The final committee report is under Products, along with a one-pager on study highlights.
