Team San Diego Aging & Disability Resource Center Awarded the 2011 Trilogy

June 22, 2011
Network of Care

Honored by n4a for Leadership as Innovators in Aging Programs and recipients of a California Counties Innovation Award from the California State Association of Counties, San Diego Aging and Independent Services in partnership with George Mason University created and are sustaining these model programs using the advanced internet technology found in the Network of Care ADRC web site and creative service collaboration.

The goal of TEAM SAN DIEGO is for multiple providers to work together to improve access to comprehensive and coordinated health and social programs for individuals with complex needs. It is anticipated that the improved care coordination will allow the chronically ill to remain independent in the community and reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and nursing home admissions.

The purpose of the Tech4Impact Diffusion Grants Program is to encourage government organizations to accelerate adoption and diffusion of technologies that improve post-acute care transitions and result in fewer re-hospitalizations.
