Author information

Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Arizona, Tucson.


This article contains the initial findings of an ongoing evaluation of a hospital-based coordinated care demonstration. The goal of the demonstration is to investigate the appropriateness and feasibility of providing hospital-based case management services for extended periods to elderly individuals living in the community. The rationale for the demonstration is reviewed, and the structure of each participating hospital's coordinated care program is described. Data are presented on the characteristics of clients served by the programs during the first six months of the demonstration. The factors that influenced implementation and early operations of these programs are analyzed, and their implications for hospital managers are discussed.
