Healthcare and Aging
According to the Institute of Medicine’s report Retooling of an Aging America , the U.S. is facing an impending healthcare crisis as older adults with complex needs are outpacing the number of healthcare providers with the knowledge and skill set to effectively care for them. It is estimated that older adults will comprise approximately 20% of the population over the next 15 years. This critical shortfall, along with the unique and costly needs of the growing aging population, many of whom experience multiple chronic medical conditions, forces us to reexamine the way the workforce provides care to older adults.
The Affordable Care Act has ushered many more Americans into the healthcare market. Value-based care is replacing fee-for-service models. Providing care through interprofessional teams is a model that has been tested and proven as each discipline works to its full scope of practice. Implementing interprofessionalism into a practice environment has proven difficult to meet the emerging needs of our patients and their caregivers. GITT 2.0 has created a platform for teams of professionals to deliver efficient and effective collaborative care for older adults that reflects the expertise of all team members.
According to the Elder Care Alliance, “Person- and family-centered interdisciplinary team care has been the hallmark of geriatrics and is the key to older adults receiving quality care and remaining independent for as long as possible” . Working together creates meaningful opportunities to mitigate current gaps in healthcare deliveries for older adults that are needlessly exorbitant.
