GECDAC About Us
The Geriatrics & Extended Care Data & Analysis Center (GECDAC) supports Geriatrics and Extended Care (GEC) programs and services by collecting and analyzing data related to aging and frail Veterans. GECDAC’s work provides GEC with evidence to make informed decisions on how to continue to offer high quality programs and services.
GECDAC supports GEC’s mission to advance quality care for aging and chronically ill Veterans, who receive care both from VA and outside the VA, by providing up-to-date data and program evaluations. To fully understand the GEC population, GECDAC provides evaluations that include data about VA, Medicare and Medicaid utilization to give a picture of care over time and across different locations. Findings are used to better understand barriers to care, unmet needs, and changes in care provided to Veterans receiving GEC services wherever they get their VA care.
GECDAC also works with and supports many VA research teams that are interested in topics related to healthcare and services for aging Veterans.
The Geriatrics & Extended Care Data & Analysis Center transforms delivery, improvement, and integration of long term services and supports across all health care settings.
The Geriatrics & Extended Care Data & Analysis Center provides an infrastructure for the acquisition and analysis of data from multiple sources to inform decision making regarding the delivery, quality and cost of care of geriatric extended care programs. GECDAC is an integral data resource for shaping policy and operations to ensure Veterans receive patient-centered care and assure stakeholders that the services promote optimal quality of life and independence in the most cost effective manner.
