Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
Siouxland PACE, operated by UnityPoint Health – St. Luke's, is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. We help participants live as independently and healthy as possible in their home and within the community. The only program of its kind in the area, Siouxland PACE provides added peace of mind for participants and their families. The program provides a unique opportunity for you to work with a team of PACE professionals committed to your health and well-being.
Siouxland PACE has access to a variety of programs to help with your health care needs. From home health to rehabilitation, our PACE team can coordinate a full-range of resources for you including primary and specialty medical care, medications, medical transportation and therapy.
You've spent a lifetime building your home and the wonderful memories within it. Whether you're searching for assisted living, nursing home or senior care, our team at Siouxland PACE will work together with you and your family to keep you safe and comfortable in your home for as long as possible.
Siouxland PACE Center
A unique feature and key to the success of the Siouxland PACE program is the PACE Center. The Siouxland PACE Center provides an opportunity for participants to build relationships with peers in the recreation center, receive medical care in the clinic, enjoy a hot and nutritious meal in the dining area and participate in rehabilitation and therapy in one location. The center also provides transportation for the participants to and from their home to the center, or other necessary appointments that they may have in the community.
The Siouxland PACE Center separates PACE from an accountable care organization (ACO) or managed care organization (MCO) because participants can receive all their necessary care in one location, eliminating the need for multiple trips and appointments with various doctors.

Notice of Data Security Incident
PeakTPA recently experienced a ransomware incident which affected data of several current and former PeakTPA clients. PeakTPA offers healthcare management services to health plans, Managed Care Advantage and Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. On December 31, 2021 PeakTPA experienced a ransomware incident impacting two of PeakTPA's cloud servers.
On February 10, 2021, PeakTPA notified Siouxland PACE ("PACE"), of the ransomware incident and that PACE participant data may have been involved. Upon learning of the issue, PACE commenced a prompt and thorough investigation to identify all participants involved. As part of its investigation, in addition to obtaining detailed information from PeakTPA about the nature and scope of the incident, PACE engaged cybersecurity professionals experienced in handling these types of incidents. PACE confirmed that PeakTPA thoroughly investigated the situation, contacted federal law enforcement, and contracted with specialized third-party agencies, which determined that certain participant information had been revealed. PeakTPA's agent successfully negotiated with the attacker and was provided evidence by video that the seized data was deleted. Furthermore, since the attack, the criminal group behind it was disrupted by U.S. federal authorities.
We regret to share that PeakTPA's forensic investigation concluded that PACE participant information was involved in the incident. The information accessed by the attack included participant names, dates of birth, addresses, social security numbers, and diagnosis and treatment information.
According to PeakTPA, there is no evidence that any data has been misused, disseminated, or otherwise made publicly available. On April 7, 2021, PeakTPA provided the affected PACE participants with written notification of this incident and providing the affected PACE participants with credit monitoring, fraud consultation, and identity theft restoration at no cost for up to three years. PeakTPA is also advising the affected participants on other actions to protect their personal information, including reviewing their financial account statements and explanation of benefits statements for fraudulent or irregular activity on a regular basis, placing a fraud alert and/or security freeze on their credit files, and/or obtaining a free credit report.
PeakTPA has assured PACE that they are enhancing their security controls and conducting ongoing efforts against incidents like this in the future. PACE remains fully committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information in its possession and has taken many precautions to safeguard it, including continually evaluating and modifying its practices, and those of its third-party service providers, to enhance data security.
For more information about this data security event, PeakTPA released a public statement regarding the incident, available at https://peaktpa.com/data-notice/.
