These pressures may significantly affect one of the most vulnerable populations, older adults, at times of acute illness or injury. An emergency department (ED) visit is often described as a sentinel event signifying a breakdown in care coordination for older adults. With the ED at the crossroads of multiple healthcare settings, it has been described as “a portal of entry to inpatient care.” Both hospitalization and being discharged from the ED carry significant risks for older adults, including iatrogenic complications, functional and cognitive decline, and loss of independence. This highlights the importance of greater care to support transitions from the ED.Programs like Geriatric Emergency Department Innovations in Care through Workforce, Informatics, and Structural Enhancements (GEDI WISE) have been developed to address these challenges. GEDI WISE was a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Health Care Innovation Award program (1C1CMS331055–01).
