I am attending the 6th Annual World Health Care
Congress in DC this week.
I have had the opportunity to meet lots of people. I also had the chance to meet some good folks that I wrote about earlier this year on the blog.
I hope to
have some new podcast shows and other interesting things for you as the week progresses!
So stay tuned!

What are Alternate Delivery Systems?
Definition: Health services provided in other than an inpatient, acute-care hospital or private practice. A phrase used to describe all forms of health care delivery except traditional fee-for-service, private practice. The term includes HMOs, PPOs, IPAs, and other systems of providing health care.
Examples within general health services include skilled and intermediary nursing facilities, hospice programs, and home health care. Alternate delivery systems are designed to provide needed services in a more cost-effective manner. Most of the services provided by community mental health centers fall into this category.
