The Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative is funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation and led by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, in partnership with the American Hospital Association and the Catholic Health Association of the United States. An age-friendly approach will measurably improve the quality of care for older adults and optimize value for health systems. An Age-Friendly Health System is a health care system in which:

  • Older adults get the best care possible
  • Health care–related harms to older adults are dramatically reduced and approaching zero
  • Older adults are satisfied with their care Value is optimized for all—patients, families, caregivers, health care providers and health systems
