Abstract (Summary)

The aging population coupled with the complexity of the older adult patient has presented a significant challenge for the healthcare industry. The literature has shown that the elderly are the major consumers of healthcare expenditures in the United States. Caring for this population in the realm of healthcare reform will require new strategies to improve the health status of the older adult patient. The objective of this study was to complete a comprehensive literature review of geriatric care models and create a business plan applying the Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) program.

NICHE is a national nurse-driven geriatric program that provides the necessary resources and tools to assist healthcare organizations in enacting system-level changes, which will impact the care of the older adult patient.
