The Indiana Health Care Association/Indiana Center for Assisted Living (IHCA/INCAL) is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Indiana Society for Post Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (IMDA). The collaboration will give IMDA members access to IHCA/INCAL’s telecommunications resources to enhance educational offerings and other membership benefits.
- The association and society share a common goal of promoting and advocating on behalf of the post acute and long term care professions.
- Physicians, nurse practitioners and other clinical professionals play a vital role in the success of skilled nursing and assisted living communities.
- Collaborative care efforts are proven to lead to improved patient outcomes and a reduction in hospitalizations. They also lead to greater staff retention and cost saving efficiencies.

The SMART Campaign is a collaborative effort between local facilities, IMDA physicians, and pharmacists, aimed at improving care for residents by reducing unnecessary polypharmacy. There are currently 14 facilities participating throughout the state. If you would like more information on joining the project, please contact IMDA at IMDA@IN-PALTC.com.
