Table 3 summarizes the effects of the interventions on medical and LTSS utilization. For most of the studies we reviewed, there were no significant changes in medical utilization (noted as NS). One study found a significant effect of care coordination on medical utilization: Callahan et al. (2006) reported fewer office visits in the intervention group.
Likewise, for most of the studies we reviewed, there were no significant changes in LTSS utilization. Two studies found lower nursing home placement rates in the intervention group. Results were mixed for home health and personal care services, respite and day care services, and other supports.
