The researchers here point the way ahead: evidence-based interventions- proactive population-based care programs- patient-centered delivery models--all developed under rigorous research controls and under the mandates of managed care. The results reported here are proof that the convergence of wellness movements, patient participation, and managed care administration can be harnessed for improved and often more cost-effective gerontologic care.
