Every day, thousands of people age into the population segment of adults age 65 and up. We’ve made improvements to how we care for this group over the last decade, especially with addressing social determinants of health and improving coverage options. But today’s health care model still isn’t working for seniors, so our researchers have been examining where we are today, where we need to be, how key stakeholders—payers, providers, manufacturers, and service organizations—interact, and how they can innovate and collaborate to ensure that we do not fail America’s seniors. Explore our resources below.
