Assessing and Predicting Health Risk in the Elderly

Even though more than a third of the elderly are online, they’re not necessarily using the Internet to seek health assistance, explains Marcia Wade, M.D., F.C.C.P., M.M.M., senior medical director at Aetna Medicare. That’s why Aetna delivers its health risk assessment for the elderly in an alternate format while making available other Web-based tools to web-savvy boomer beneficiaries. Dr. Wade also describes Aetna’s user-friendly strategy for heading off high-risk complications among its elderly and how this contributes to an overall reduction in hospital readmissions.

Dr. Wade will explain what to assess in the elderly population, how to match interventions based on risk score and the impact of this type of initiative during Assessing and Predicting Health Risk in the Elderly, a 45-minute webinar on February 10, 2010.
