Patient Priorities Care: Dissemination and Scaling
This grant supports the dissemination of Patient Priorities Care, a process ensuring that older adults with multiple chronic conditions receive care aligned with their articulated values, goals, and health priorities. Pilot findings showed reductions in medications and unnecessary diagnostic testing, and appreciation by patients and clinicians for attention to goals, reduced care burden, and improved quality of life. In this phase, a patient self-directed version for identifying goals will be developed; use of OurNotes (a component of OpenNotes that allows patients to input information into their electronic health record) will be piloted; products, tools and training will be refined in partnership the American College of Physicians; and the process will be embedded in JAHF-supported Age-Friendly Health Systems sites and elsewhere.
