Abstract

The innovative model of capitated acute and chronic care for nursing-home-eligible elderly persons, which was developed at On Lok in San Francisco’s Chinatown and stresses using community care in lieu of institutional care, has been replicated at eight sites around the country. The early experience in developing these sites tests the extent to which the principles of this approach, based on day health care, can be reproduced in a variety of other settings. Four of the eight sites have begun formal capitated care; enrollment has been less active than anticipated, apparently due to reluctance to change physicians and resistance to day care.
