Date:10/5/2009

aid. "Also distinctive was our work to incorporate ACE into our electronic health record system."

"Through ACE Tracker and e-Geriatrician, Aurora is able to reach thousands of seniors and improve their care," Dr. Malone said.

As health care providers struggle to deal with a shortage of geriatricians throughout the country and improve access to care for an aging population, the "e-Geriatrician" and ACE Tracker programs may provide part of the solution. The American Geriatric Society's AGS Foundation for Health in Aging projects that between 2010 and 2030, one in five Americans will be older than 65. Meanwhile, the number of certified geriatricians in the United States has declined from 8,800 to 7,100.

"That's what makes this project so vital," Dr. Malone said. "Finding better, more efficient ways to care for the elderly is more important than ever."

In addition to Aurora, the other sites chosen to participate in the Medicare Innovations Collaborative are: Carolinas Health Care Systems/Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy, Charlotte, N.C.; Crouse Hospital, Syracuse, N.Y.; Geisinger Health Systems, Danville, Pa.; Lehigh Valley Health Network, Allentown, Pa.; and University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio. The project is being funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies.
