This paper explores the need for healthcare reform to support the aging population in the United States. In the literature review, the author identifies the unique needs of the aging population and explores the application of integrated care models in achieving the healthcare Triple Aim. Two alternative integrated care models for older adults in the United States are examined: the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) and Tandem 365. Berwick, Nolan, and Whittington’s (2008) recommendations of key framework for integrated care models to achieve the Triple Aim are introduced and utilized to evaluate and compare PACE and Tandem 365. Recommendations are discussed supporting the replication and development of integrated care models, and the need for further research of this topic.
