The purpose of the ADDGS Managed Care Initiative, initiated by HRSA in 1997 (when they were administering this program) is to test the effect of community-based interventions for persons with Alzheimer's disease and their famlies upon use of primary care physicians in a managed care setting. Final analysis will seek to determine if there is a decreased utilization of primary care physicians for resource and referral purposes and if there is any discernable difference between families participating in the program and those accessing information through routine channels.
