5 ways to improve the care of the elderly


Chris Wing proposes five ways to improve the care of the elderly. Mr. Wing, CEO of SCAN Health Plan, based in Long Beach, Calif., concludes at the  end of this piece:

“The key is emphasizing primary prevention, early intervention and effective care coordination throughout the spectrum of care. At-risk seniors can be part of geriatric health-management or disease-management programs and can benefit from a medication-management program that focuses on the correct match between diagnosis and drugs. Medicare Advantage helps to ensure the appropriate use of services, improve the coordination of care with different providers, and improve clinical outcomes every step of the way.”
