Meals on Wheels America (MOWA), in partnership with Quantified Ventures and Gorman Health Group, will pursue a PFS project in the Salt Lake region of northern Utah designed to help seniors live healthier lives in their own homes. The project would be MOWA's second PFS project and is unique in targeting Medicare Advantage plans as the payor. Potential measurable outcomes include the reduction in ER visits, hospital admissions, and hospital readmissions, as well as the impact on the Medicare Advantage Star Rating metrics, a quality measurement that determines reimbursement rates.
