Medically complex seniors who receive home-based primary care (HBPC) often face challenges requiring home and community-based services (HCBS).
This study sought to understand:
• The extent that HBPC practices are initiating referrals, and assessing and coordinating HCBS
• If referral and coordination levels differ based on practice characteristics
• The challenges and barriers providers face in the referral and coordination process.
