National PACE Statistics 

Take a look at the studies we use for Bluestem PACE to further our mission of providing a comprehensive, holistic, managed-care program for the elderly.

PACE has been shown to reduce hospital stays up to 83% per year.

This study sought to analyze PACE participants' hospital utilization under the hypothesis that it would compare favorably to comparable populations receiving care through other avenues. The analysis supported the hypothesis, observed in both the overall number of hospital stays and the total number of days spent in hospitals by PACE participants. This data shows the benefit of the focus on care coordination found in the PACE model.
