CHA to Host Webinar on Implementing Age-Friendly Care Throughout the Health Care System

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

Older adults who experience acute health events are regularly managed through services provided in multiple settings – emergency departments, inpatient care, and post-acute care settings – and require several risky care transitions. These episodes are among the top drivers of health care costs and poor outcomes for aging populations. Hospitals have responded by implementing cross-continuum strategies to increase understanding of the unique needs of older adults and establish “age-friendly care.” On June 20, CHA will host a webinar where members can hear from West Health, a leader in the development of health care delivery models that improve care and access while reducing costs for the fast-growing, diverse population of older adults.   

The webinar will:  

  • Define the key components of age-friendly care in hospitals and health systems
  • Discuss innovative home-based care models and services 
  • Review strategies to financially support and sustain new models of care
