Frailty Implementation

  • Frailty assessment at BIDMC (PI: Kim/Sison): We have integrated a frailty index calculator in the electronic health records at BIDMC.  This quality improvement project aims to implement a telephone-based frailty assessment for older patients with serious illness at Senior Health Practice.  Those with frailty receive diet and exercise recommendations, referral to the Beth Israel Lahey Health care management program, and periodic telephone check-ins for 6 months.
