National Invitational Conference on Long-Term Care Data Bases: Conference Proceedings


During the 1980s, HHS fielded several major surveys which substantially enhanced the breadth and quality of data available to the general public on the utilization and costs of long-term care services. The purpose of this conference was to: (1) share technical information with respect to data base documentation issues, limitations of the surveys and alternative methods for overcoming limitations; (2) share results of ongoing analytic work employing these data bases; and (3) demonstrate the potential of these data bases for assisting employers, insurance companies, CCRCs, and state agencies in projecting service needs and planning and costing out public and private financing alternatives. Approximately 300 persons attended including government policy analysts, outside researchers and insurance industry representatives. This document summarizes the sessions from this two day conference.
