Transforming Care through Age-Friendly Health Systems

By 2050, it is estimated that those over the age of 65 will make up 39% of the population in the United States. Given this, it is especially important that health systems are aware of how they can meet the needs of older adults by engaging the whole community with holistic approaches to care. 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. This initiative emphasizes the development of key areas to advance the health of older adults.

The American Hospital Association will be hosting a webinar on July 14 at 12:00 pm CST (11:00 am MST) to provide an overview of Rush University Medical Center’s efforts in becoming an Age-Friendly Health System. Participants will learn the benefits of the Age-Friendly care model and how to apply it to their own organizations. To register for the webinar, click here.
