The first AHA Age-Friendly Health Systems action community concluded this month, with 184 health care teams and 12 allied associations across the U.S. participating. To meet the unique health care needs of older adults, this cohort simultaneously implemented the 4Ms Framework — what matters, medications, mentation and mobility.

The AHA will be hosting another Age-Friendly Health Systems action community in fall 2020.
