Recent federal and state initiatives such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have expanded the opportunities for Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) to be partners in acute care and health system coordination. With a grant from the Administration on Aging (AoA), the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) partnered with the Scripps Gerontology Center to conduct the 2012 Bridging the Aging Network and Medical Community AAA Survey. Results describe programs with the health care community, partners, barriers to such programs and technical assistance and training needs.
