Corita Grudzen, M.D., named a practice change leader to improve health care for older adults
Date:1/17/2013

Corita Grudzen, MD, MSHS, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has been selected as one of 10 inaugural members of The Practice Change Leaders for Aging and Health program for experts in geriatric care.

The national initiative aims to increase the number of health care leaders who can effectively promote innovative, high quality health care for older adults. The program is made possible by the support of The Atlantic Philanthropies and The John A. Hartford Foundation.

Dr. Grudzen will research methods to address the needs of older adult who receive both Medicare and Medicaid benefits, known as dual-eligible patients. Dr. Grudzen was eligible for the $45,000 grant in part because she completed the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Innovation Advisors Program, launched in 2011 to help health professionals deepen skills that will drive improvements to patient care and reduce costs.

"Through my work in the CMS Innovation Advisors Program, I realized that the needs of dual-eligible patients, usually the poorest and sickest patients, who need more federal resources than other populations, are often overlooked," said Dr. Grudzen. "I am honored to be chosen for pariticipation in the Practice Change Leaders program and to be given the opportunity to create new models of care for our country's most vulnerable patients."

Dr. Grudzen will collaborate with local nursing homes and health care organizations as well as nurse practitioners, social workers and pharmacists within Mount Sinai to identify innovative ways to address issues such as unnecessary patient transfers or hospitalizations. She will present data and analysis throughout the year to colleagues in the Practice Change Leaders program as well as professionals who share a commitment to improving health and health care outcomes in older adults.

The Practice Change Leaders program is under the direction of Eric A. Coleman, MD, from the University of Colorado Denver, and the co-direction of Nancy Whitelaw, PhD, from the National Council on Aging (NCOA).
