Summary

This paper summarizes the National Long-Term Care Channeling Demonstration Program, a project designed to test the feasibility and cost effectiveness of an alternative community-based long-term care service delivery concept for the frail elderly which integrated health and social services. Program management and early federal planning efforts are discussed, and an overview of the purposes of Channeling is provided. Descriptions are given for the two Channeling models used: Basic Case Management (five sites) and Financial Control (five sites). Core functions of Channeling are discussed in the areas of screening, assessment, care planning, arranging for services, follow-up and monitoring, and reassessment. The population, cost consciousness, work with informal supports, and health and social services are identified as factors involved in case management. Four major phases in the Channeling demonstration are discussed: demonstration planning, buildup, steady state, and closeout. The technical assistance contract for the Channeling demonstration is identified, project evaluation is described, major data collection activities are listed, and major findings are reported. Tables are provided which illustrate project milestones, Channeling sites and host agencies, Channeling demonstration eligibility criteria, and elements of the evaluation research design. (NB)
