The Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders (ACOVE-2) project endeavored to develop a comprehensive set of quality-assessment tools for vulnerable elderly persons. Because "vulnerable elderly persons" constitute a heterogeneous cohort that is not easily delineated, we created a system to identify high-risk, community-dwelling individuals and targeted the most important clinical conditions affecting them. ACOVE Prime built upon ACOVE-2, focusing on Falls/Mobility Disorders and Urinary Incontinence.
Designed to change the culture of the practicing physician, ACOVE Prime involved a multi-component quality improvement intervention that included:
- a screening process for conditions,
- data collection delegation,
- structured visit notes that lead physicians through appropriate care processes,
- physician and patient education materials, and
- links to community resources.
The ACOVE Prime Online module aims to provide physicians with the educational and practical materials necessary to integrate these quality improvement tools.
