The Low ADL Monitoring Program (LAMP) is a VISN 8 Community Care Coordination Service (CCCS) program designed to address the needs of veterans with activities of daily living (ADL) dependence through care coordination and the use of home monitoring and communications technology. The goal of LAMP is to promote independence and the maintenance of skills necessary to remain living at home, enhance quality of life, increase access to services, and reduce health related costs for functionally impaired veterans.
LAMP provides services for home-based veterans who require personal assistance with at least two basic ADLs (eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, and mobility). Veterans enrolled in LAMP receive a functional and home assessment by an occupational therapist, basic assistive technology and minor home environmental modifications, training and education, and referrals for additional services. They also receive daily remote monitoring via an in-home messaging device or personalized web-form dialogue via computer/internet-based communication. A key aspect of LAMP is care coordination, an interdisciplinary approach to meeting veterans' needs across the continuum of care. LAMP staff work collaboratively with primary care providers and clinicians to reduce complications, hospitalizations, and unscheduled clinic and ER visits.
