A recent study evaluating the Right Care, Right Place, Right Time (R3) program finds that collaboration between healthcare providers and affordable housing sites improves health outcomes for seniors. The R3 program encourages collaboration between wellness nurses and coordinators in senior housing on tasks like conducting assessments, seeking partnerships with other organizations, and tracking trends and data. The study finds that older adults living in sites offering the R3 program experienced lower hospitalization rates, fewer days spent in the hospital, and fewer readmissions, while also reducing costs. “Age-friendly health systems would do well to enhance partnerships with affordable housing sites to improve care and reduce service use for older residents,” conclude the study’s authors.
