Testing of a Community Complex Care Response Team to Improve Geriatric Public Health Outcomes

Testing of a Community Complex Care Response Team to Improve Geriatric Public Health Outcomes

This study evaluates Michigan’s Community Complex Care Response Team, a collaboration of three community agencies that provide services across the medical care, public health, and social and community services to decrease potential vulnerabilities and promote health, wellness, and independence in older adults. The research team will use a pragmatic randomized controlled trial to examine the impact of coordinated service delivery on emergency department utilization; will explore which institutions are best positioned to perform integrator roles that connect vulnerable older adults to needed services and supports; and will identify data sharing and storage challenges across health and human service sectors.
