The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) are partnering on the Creating Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative. The goal of the initiative is to develop an Age-Friendly Health Systems model and rapidly spread the model to 20 percent of U.S. hospitals and health systems by 2020.
Five U.S. health systems participating in the Creating Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative will test and scale up the prototype model in their organizations. They include three Catholic ministries: Ascension, Trinity Health and Providence St. Joseph Health. Find more information about the initiative on the John A. Hartford Foundation and American Hospital Association websites.
As this initiative takes shape, CHA will provide timely updates and articles on this page. For additional information, please contact Julie Trocchio, CHA's senior director of community benefit and continuing care.
