Medicine Grand Rounds - Age-Friendly Health System in the Academic Health Center

This presentation describes the philosophy and structure of an Age-Friendly Health System. As the geriatric population is growing significantly, the unique needs of this age group should be managed as a social movement that has its roots at the kitchen table not as a hospital project. Dr. Fulmer discusses the importance of careful attention to the 4M Bundle and social determinants of health, keeping interventions age-friendly, precise data collection (readmissions, ED visits, medication management, etc.) and direct measure of age related diagnoses such as delirium, dementia and depression.
