DESCRIPTION: Older adults with multiple conditions receive healthcare that can be burdensome; potentially harmful; fragmented across diseases, providers, and settings; and not always focused on what matters most to them. Over the past 3 years, with input from patients, caregivers, primary and specialty clinicians, health system leaders and redesign experts, and payers, we designed a prototype that aligns clinical decision-making and healthcare with each patient’s health priorities, namely their health outcome goals and care preferences. We are now piloting patient priorities care in  a primary care and cardiology practice in Connecticut. The underlying premise for patient priorities care is that decision-making should be predicated on achieving each patient’s priorities not merely managing their individual diseases.

Opening remarks from Special Adviser to the Commissioner of Health, Mark Kissinger!

Dinner will be served and with Kosher options available upon request!
