Getting to Measures That Matter
Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common of the dementias, affects an estimated 5.2 million Americans, accounts for 60-80 percent of all dementia cases, and is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. overall. Not surprisingly, the economic burden of dementia is high and the emotional and physical burden is immense, not only for the patients suffering themselves, but also for their families and caregivers.
This project seeks to develop a path forward for quality and efficiency measurement to improve care and outcomes for patients with dementia.
