By the year 2050, the nation’s adult population over age 65 is projected to reach 83.7 million or 39%. Through the development of Age-Friendly Health Systems and increased focus on four key areas (the 4Ms), we aim to improve patient care and safety as well as reduce length of stay and number of readmissions. Age-Friendly Health Systems is an initiative designed to meet the needs of older adults, looking beyond acute events, engaging the whole community, and achieving better health for older adults. View this webinar to learn about the impact and outcomes of the 4Ms Framework — what matters, medications, mobility and mentation — through a case example featuring Atrium Health. Learn how they tracked data and used the skill set of their team to provide reliable 4Ms care to older adults.

Learning Objectives:

  • 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
  • Review the progress and challenges of the initiative at a site and hear about how your organization can become involved
