Read more annual spending in the last year of life is $82,000, driven by aggressive care (that may not be wanted) and use of long-term services and support. The ever-increasing sense of dissatisfaction with care delivery intersects a rapidly growing population of adults over the age of 65. In pursuit of redesigning late-life care delivery to better address patient preferences, researchers at the Stanford Clinical Excellence Research Center have studied and prioritized three care delivery innovations that can be implemented by Medicare Advantage plans within the scope of recently expanded supplemental benefits, and offer substantial annual savings. Myra received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis where her research focused on the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity. She also completed a fellowship in value-based healthcare at Stanford Clinical Excellence Research Center where she focused on understanding how best to improve the quality of care while ensuring sustainable costs for the late-life population. She brings all of these perspectives to Modern Health, where her team oversees the quality of the coaching and therapy network, digital content and tools, as well as research and outcomes.
