The John A. Hartford Foundation is pleased to announce five new grants totaling more than $5.2 million to implement and disseminate evidence-based approaches to better care for older adults:

  • The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Johns Hopkins University will aim to increase the availability of the Hospital at Home Care Model by developing new tools and resources, working toward new payment strategies with stakeholders, and expanding to 10-15 new sites and to more patients at existing sites.
     
  • The Education Development Center, with a group of leading national experts, will implement and evaluate the Elder Mistreatment Emergency Department Care Model in six diverse emergency departments in preparation for a future national scaling effort.
     
  • The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), in partnership with key geriatrics and dissemination organizations, will spread the UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Program to 8-10 new sites, further advancing this program that has improved health outcomes and healthcare costs for people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
     
  • The Institute for Healthcare Improvement will receive two grants through a six-foundation collaborative, one to continue to develop and disseminate the Better Care Playbook, and another to establish a learning community of 30-45 teams from Medicare Advantage plans that will implement models and practices from the Playbook.
