Allegheny County Department of Human Services AAA Announced as Care Transitions Site
CMS last week announced 17 additional sites, including one in Pennsylvania, selected to participate in the Community-Based Care Transitions Program (CCTP). Together with the first 30 sites, the CCTP now includes 200 acute care hospitals partnering with community-based organizations across 47 sites to provide care transitions services for an estimated nearly 185,800 Medicare beneficiaries annually.
The latest Pennsylvania site selected for the program is the Allegheny County Department of Human Services Area Agency on Aging, which will partner with four hospitals to deliver care transition services to more than 2,900 Medicare beneficiaries annually. The hospitals include Allegheny General Hospital, Western Pennsylvania Hospital Forbes Regional Campus, Ohio Valley General Hospital and Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
The Allegheny County site joins three other Pennsylvania sites that were announced previously:
Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging

The program will build off the current experience of the Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging in providing evidence-based care transition services.
