The nation’s adult population over age 65 is projected to reach 83.7 million by the year 2050, an increase from 21% of the population in 2012 to more than 39% in 2050. Age-Friendly health systems is an initiative of The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in partnership with the American Hospital Association and the Catholic Health Association of the United States. The initiative is designed to meet the needs of older adults, looking beyond acute events, engaging the whole community, and achieving better health for older adults. By focusing on four key areas — what matters, medications, mobility and mentation — we aim to improve patient care, safety and outcomes; and reduce length of stay and readmissions. Join this webinar to learn about the importance and impact of the 4Ms Framework, hear bright spots in the field integrating value-based, Age-Friendly care and understand the benefits of joining the Action Community.
- Assess the need for health systems to become age-friendly
- Learn about the Age-Friendly Health Systems movement and how the 4Ms Framework (what matters, medications, mobility, and mentation) can be applied to a care setting
