Amramp exhibits at PACE 2015 elder inclusive-care conference

Amramp Selected to Exhibit at the 2015 NPA Annual Conference in Philadelphia

Amramp is honored to be selected to showcase its installed accessibility products and solutions at the 2015 National PACE Association (NPA) Annual Conference, Oct. 18-21, in Philadelphia.

PACE, aka Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, develops sustainable programs to deliver medical and supportive services to elders 55 and older whom the state certifies needing nursing home-level care.

Strikingly, only about 7% of PACE participants actually reside in a nursing home. Instead, PACE provides services and preserves independence in their own homes, with community support. This event, which is held exclusively for NPA members, exists to advance Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly programs and provide networking and learning opportunities to the executive and clinical staff work tirelessly to support and promote comprehensive, quality, and cost-effective health care services for seniors.

The PACE model of care first began in the early 1970s when William Gee, a public health dentist who headed the nonprofit Chinatown-North Beach Health Care Planning and Development Corporation, hired social worker Marie-Louise Ansak to study the feasibility of building a nursing home in the community. When she found that building a nursing home would be financially impossible, she developed a comprehensive system of care based on the geriatric day-hospital model developed in the UK during the late 1950s and 1960s. Ansak then worked to obtain funding to train health care workers in cooperation with the University of California San Francisco. Since then PACE has grown considerably and currently has 107 programs operating in 32 states, where they offer services such as:

  • adult day care

  • physical, occupational, and recreational therapies

  • meal delivery

  • nutritional counseling

  • home health care and personal care

  • prescription drugs

  • social services

  • medical specialties, such as audiology, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, and speech therapy

More than 600 individuals attended the 2014 NPA Annual Conference, this year is expected to be even bigger. With more than 60 education sessions and 20 poster presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn and, with over 25 companies exhibiting.

This year’s keynote speaker Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency-room physician, Rhodes Scholar, author, and TED speaker. Dr. Wen received her medical training at Washington University and Brigham & Women's Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital, where she was a clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School. As a professor of emergency medicine and health policy, she co-led a national collaboration on health policy and social mission and was founder and director of Who’s My Doctor, a campaign calling for transparency in medicine. The focus of Dr. Wen’s TED talks surround patient advocacy and health care reform. She recently released a book entitled When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests. Her speaking fee will be donated to Baltimore-area and other charities.

Amramp is looking forward to being a part of this conference that shares our passion for helping seniors maintain their independence. We will be demonstrating Amramp’s latest accessibility products, including our patent-pending modular ramp system, vertical lifts, and portable showers. Looking forward to seeing all PACE members in Philadelphia!
