Help Ensure Age-Friendly Hospital Care

Submit a public comment to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), encouraging the agency to adopt two new age-friendly geriatrics hospital measures.  

These evidence-backed quality measures stem from JAHF-supported programs that reduce hospital costs and length of stay, and decrease the risk of losing independence and major complications for older adults following hospitalization.

Tell CMS You Support the Measures

Use this template letter to submit a comment by June 9 asking CMS to adopt these measures. Read a Health Affairs commentary to learn why these measures matter.
