Our rapidly-aging society coupled with a growing prevalence of Americans living with a disability raise several critical issues for policymakers, such as how to deliver high quality care and empower consumer choice and control while remaining cost effective, and how to best provide equitable educational and employment opportunities for people with disabilities across the life course.
IMPAQ International helps clients evaluate and enhance local, state, and Federal programs and policies relevant to people of all ages and abilities. Our staff of gerontologists, health services researchers, disability studies experts, and economists lead aging and disability program evaluations, long-term services and supports (LTSS) policy analysis, and quality measurement and improvement studies for governmental and non-profit clients.
IMPAQ’s portfolio of research on aging and disability programs and services, geriatrics and healthcare workforce issues, Medicare and Medicaid demonstration evaluations, and nutrition and food insecurity issues among older adults includes collaboration with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Administration for Community Living, Food and Nutrition Services, AARP, and the American Geriatrics Society.
Recent projects include the national study of Aging & Disability Resource Centers, development of indicators to assess states’ progress in shifting LTSS spending from institutional to home-and-community-based care settings (HCBS), and evaluating innovative demonstrations to increase the volume and quality of the healthcare workforce on the front lines of delivering primary care to older adults and persons with disabilities.
