The AMSL is seeking to standardize care for this population due to it’s large footprint across the continuum of care and the opportunity for system-wide improvement through strong collaboration with MMP Geriatrics.

Goal: Leverage the Clinical Transformation structure and resourcing with an existing MMP Geriatrics initiative focusing on the 4M’s in inpatient settings, including pursuit of IHI “Committed to Care Excellence” designation for Age Friendly Care. Establish baseline metrics and target improvement in the following areas:

•What Matters: Promote advanced care planning conversations and documentation •Mentation: early identification and management of delirium •Medications: Avoid selected high risk medications during hospitalization •Mobility: encourage safe mobility while hospitalized
