NAME OF STUDY:   Community Nursing Organization (CNO) Demonstration
FUNDING SOURCE:   HCFA Division of Aging and Disability
PROJECT DATES:   September 1992 to September 1997
RESEARCH QUESTIONS/GOALS:   To test the impact of nurse-directed home health care and nurse case management on enrollees’ use of home health care and certain ambulatory services. Of central interest is the degree to which a partially-capitated service package and nurse case management can be used to integrate care across the full range of CNO and Medicare services in multiple settings.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF METHODS AND DATA:   Four sites completed a 15-month development phase and implemented programs in January 1994; 8,000 Medicare beneficiaries are expected to participate in this three-year demonstration. There will be 12-month pre and 18-month post impact analysis related to health status, functional status, utilization, and expenditures for CNO enrollees compared to a randomly selected control group.
AVAILABILITY OF RESULTS:   Findings will be available for presentation for Fall 1996. Two completed annual site reports are available, containing qualitative site-specific material.
