LTQA’s strategic goal for the five-year period from 2018 through 2022 is the achievement of:
A broader commitment from stakeholders and policymakers to a vision for delivering and financing LTSS in the future around which a wide array of stakeholder groups can coalesce.
In the next three years, LTQA’s will pursue this strategic goal by accomplishing two intermediate tactical goals:
- An improved evidence base that can be used to justify investments in integrated LTSS systems – especially investments by established health care plans, accountable health systems (ACOs), and federal and state governments;
- Identified roadblocks to advancing integrated care and progress toward reducing them to enable development and operation of successful organizations and programs that integrate person-centered, high-quality, and consumer-empowering LTSS and acute care.
LTQA has adopted several objectives to make progress toward these Tactical Goals over the next three years. These objectives will guide LTQA’s projects and activities over the next five years (2018 through 2022), as outlined in the chart below:
