What is the Scorecard?
The Scorecard looks across all categories to measure state-level LTSS system performance from the viewpoint of users of services and their families.
What are LTSS?
LTSS consist of a broad range of day-to-day help needed by people with long-term conditions, disabilities, or frailty.
How can the data be used?
The Scorecard provides comparable state data to: benchmark performance, measure progress, identify areas for improvement, and improve lives.
PLANNING NEXT LTSS STATE SCORECARD
The SCAN Foundation and AARP are planning the 5th edition of the Scorecard, to include considerations of the massive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the influx of federal Medicaid funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) that states will receive for home- and community-based services. If you have suggestions for how to best measure state performance now, related to navigating the pandemic, effective usage of ARPA funding in its aftermath or other ideas, please take a moment to email the Scorecard authors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
