Session ID: 

A New Model of Care for an Aging Population

1:30pm - 2:30pm Tuesday, March 10
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Two physicians who practice internal and geriatric medicine observed an increasing mismatch between the needs of frail patients and the outcomes of standard of care interventions prescribed to them. They set out to understand how care, provided with good intention, can create a chaotic, inefficient and, ineffective experience when individuals are frail, and ultimately, created a multi-award winning clinical model to systematically address gaps in care. They sought the assistance of consulting services to help advise them on creating technology-enabled tools and processes that were needed to effectively socialize the model to benefit the masses. Learn how this team developed a best-practice model that can be utilized globally to address the complexities of frailty.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how frailty/multimorbidity challenges current health care delivery models
  • Identify approaches that overcome common challenges to clinical transformation
  • Describe clinically meaningful ways to assess frailty and its drivers
