Building a movement to advance care quality at home
The National Home-based Primary Care Learning Network is pleased to announce the selection of the newest wave of practices that will be joining other home-based primary care practices committed to continuous learning and quality improvement. The seventeen programs represent a range of practice types and the full geography of the United States–from New York to California. Together, they will identify strategies and expand the evidence-base to best meet the complex needs of homebound older adults and those caring for them.

This work is part of large-scale initiative funded by The John A Hartford Foundation to improve care for the more than two million older adults and people with disabilities who are the “invisible homebound” with functional impairments and frailty.
“This is the largest cohort to join the National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network, and we’re thrilled to see representation from many different states and the Veteran’s Administration,” said Scott Bane, JD, MPA, program officer at The John A Hartford Foundation. “We congratulate and applaud the practices selected for this learning community, which will help assure that homebound older adults receive age-friendly care focused on what matters most to them.”
