This report, supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation, explores the care experienced by older adults in the U.S., including the number and types of care providers they see, along with the frequency with which they have contact with the health care system. It identifies areas where improvements are most needed and recognizes areas in which improvements are already under way. Finally, it notes challenges and opportunities presented by people with multiple chronic conditions and dementia. Source: Dartmouth Atlas
