AHA releases case studies on establishing age-friendly care

Hospital News

Two new case studies highlight how hospitals and health systems are customizing care for older adult patients. Working to become an age-friendly health system, Kent Hospital, a member of Care New England, in Rhode Island has decreased length of stay, readmissions and falls with injury among older adults. Rush University Medical Center in Chicago has increased patient, family and staff satisfaction, among other positive health outcomes. Hospitals and health systems are encouraged to join AHA’s Age-Friendly Health Systems Action Community, a free, virtual community that convenes in mid-September.
