This presentation's purpose is to examine the impact of informatics and geriatric care knowledge models in assisting older adults and their families navigate the health care system. The United States health care system is a complicated and confusing environment consisting of multiple health providers, complex resources and fragmented care models. Currently the provider side of health care has disease treatment protocols, pathways, and regulations for physicians, nurses, and care facilities that are developed and constantly improved. However, there are no similar sources of best practice processes, care management models for older adults, caregivers, and/or geriatric care managers (GCM). Senior Care Navigation System (SCANSTM) demonstrates how technology, informatics, and knowledge models assist in solving this problem. SCANSTM combines leading geriatric care field experience and top research into a proprietary Knowledge Management and Decision Support System. SCANSTM is designed to assist the GCM and caregivers in meeting the older adult's needs while improving productivity. This presentation will demonstrate the utility of a developmental approach to building and sustaining an ontology-based Decision Support System through the collaborative effort of academia and private industry. Background: The 45 million adults currently over age 65 will grow to 70 million by 2030. While it's evident that the demand for medical care specific to this age group will increase, the number of physicians and nurses skilled in geriatric medicine is predicted to fall far short of the need. Unfortunately, while technology and informatics are penetrating the medical provider world with protocols, decision aids and guidelines, no similar use of informatics is focused on care management of the geriatric consumer. Outcomes: Initial implementation of SCANS was in fall 2008; provided extensive evidence based knowledge to GCMs covering 170 critical issues facing older adults with 850 real world solutions and over 1300 practical actions and resources.
