Trillium II /Focus workshop at Informatics for Health2017: Manchester, April 24-27, 2017
Frailty is an age-related state of vulnerability to the risk of adverse health out-comes after a stressor event. The condition predisposes individuals to progressive decline in different functional domains, leading to falls and fractures, disability and dependency on others, hospitalization, institutional placement and ultimately death. We discuss drivers, challenges and opportunities for healthcare information standards related to frailty in old age in an effort to launch a call for coordinated action across research, policy, and academia. Key issues are selected as the back-drop for this discussion: EHR, patient summaries and frailty in a context of coor-dinated care enabled by health IT standards.
