Sponsored by: Managing Transitions to Care for the Dually Eligible Medicare and Medicaid Patient

According to recent estimates, about 11 percent of Medicare beneficiaries are also eligible for Medicaid, a population referred to as "dual-eligibles." There are a number of strategies that can reduce the number of hospital admissions and re-admissions among the dually eligible Medicare and Medicaid population, ranging from programs that uncover potential pharmaceutical interactions and adverse reactions to in-person and/or telephonic coaching. Managing Transitions to Care for the Dually Eligible Medicare and Medicaid Patient, a February 14, 2007 audio conference, will examine effective care management strategies for this unique population.

3.) Baby Boomers’ Impact on Healthcare: High Demands, Expectations Met with a Healthy Dose of Prevention

Boomers are depicted as an educated, financially secure bunch, redefining retirement as they care for aging parents and launch second careers. Job-wise, they’re having the last laugh: employers who shunned the older worker 20 years ago now recast work schedules and job descriptions to woo boomers back to work. But the picture wouldn’t be complete without some sobering statistics, particularly when it comes to the healthcare needs of boomers.
