Transcending the Pandemic:  The Age-Friendly Health System's Call to Action. 
Annette Medina-Walpole, MD, Paul H. Fine Professor of Medicine, Chief, Division of Geriatrics & Aging, Director, University of Rochester Aging Institute, URSMD

The Age-Friendly Health System  (AFHS) is an initiative of The John A. Hartford Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, in partnership with the American Hospital Association and the Catholic Health Association of the United States. AFHS follow an essential set of evidence-based practices and align with what matters to the older adult and their family caregivers.​ Becoming an Age-Friendly Health System entails reliably providing a set of four evidence-based elements of high-quality care, known as the “4Ms,” to all older adults in your system: What Matters, Medication, Mentation, and Mobility.  The COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated the importance of an AFHS and how the care of the older adult can be optimized in an AFHS.
