Older Americans with multiple health problems are suffering needlessly because our health care system does not effectively coordinate their care.
From harmful drug interactions to duplicate tests and procedures to conflicting diagnoses to contradictory medical instructions, the system is letting them down. Doctors should talk to one another, medical records should be at our fingertips, and patients (and their families) should not have to fend for themselves.
Now that health reform is law, we can begin the hard work of fixing our health care system so everyone realizes the promise of reform.
Sometimes the facts speak for themselves. When it comes to our health care system and whether or not it is serving vulnerable older adults and their families the evidence is clear and compelling.
