Supporting People with Severe Disability or Late-Stage AIDS to Live with Dignity at Home: Lessons from the Community Medical Alliance Demonstration, 1992–1996
A presentation from 2022–2023 Sally Starling Seaver Fellow Lisa I. Iezzoni
Lisa I. Iezzoni is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, based at the Health Policy Research Center and the Mongan Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital. For 25 years, her research has focused on improving the lived experiences, healthcare quality, and health equity of adults with disability, particularly mobility disability.
Iezzoni’s Radcliffe fellowship project will examine a 1992–1996 Massachusetts Medicaid demonstration, the Community Medical Alliance (CMA), which provided in-home medical and supportive services to Medicaid’s costliest beneficiaries: people with severe physical disability or late-stage AIDS.
