RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MAXIMUS (NYSE:MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide,
announced today that Barbara Selter, Vice President, Health Services, an
expert in the coordination of long-term services and supports (LTSS),
will be a featured presenter at the National Association of States
United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) Iowa Governor’s Conference on
Aging & Disabilities and Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS)

Ms. Selter will speak on a panel titled “Tools for Aging at Home” with
Tracy Keninger, Director, Rural Solutions and Assistive Technology
Center at Easter Seals Iowa. Ms. Selter will discuss how advancements in
technology can be used in the Medicaid waiver eligibility and enrollment
process to help deliver services more quickly. She will also cover how
new advancements in telecare can be partnered with hands-on services to
enable seniors to stay in their homes longer, therefore improving
quality of life and management of chronic conditions. Lastly, she will
share how states can create career paths for their Welfare-to-Work
candidates to become home health care workers, allowing them to gain
meaningful employment while addressing the shortage of workers.

“States are striving to improve the quality of life and care for their
LTSS populations, while finding efficiencies that enable them to support
an ever-growing population,” said Barbara Selter. “Utilizing available
technology can expedite the eligibility and enrollment processes and
reduce institutionalization by enabling people to remain in their homes
longer and improve their quality of life.”
