- What is a promising approach to caring for different subpopulations of people with dementia?
- What is an existing example, and what were the challenges and learning lessons learned?
This resource provides an example of an approach to caring for different subpopulations of people with dementia.
- UCLA Health adopted a structure that identifies people living with dementia, then categorizes these individuals into five risk strata.
- The top 1 percent have extraordinarily high costs with uncertain benefits on duration and quality of life. People in this stratum may benefit from comprehensive dementia care management programs.
- Challenges for this program included ensuring that the analytics team could provide the needed data to identify the subpopulations, and launching several new clinical programs simultaneously.
