About This Topic
I am delighted to edit this special edition of OBM Integrative and Complementary Medicine focusing on Geriatric Care Models. This is an exciting opportunity to highlight innovative work on geriatric healthcare models and healthcare systems.
I invite you to contribute your work focused on geriatric clinical care and population health management. Geriatric patients represent a special population for which care management may be improve healthcare. Geriatric care models focus on high-risk high-need patients and can be valuable resources for healthcare organizations.
Consider submitting work on geriatric risk assessment and management, social and behavioral determinants of health, functional assessment, caregiver support, team-based care, and telehealth. The utilization of Big Data, artificial intelligence, and the electronic health record (EHR) to identify and monitor high-risk patients is of great interest. In addition to clinical needs, the high-need population will also require consideration of behavioral, functional, and social needs with enhanced provision of social and community support services.
We hope you and your colleagues will be willing to submit your creative work for this exciting special issue of OBM Integrative and Complementary Medicine. I look forward to hearing from you.
