Upstate Medical University will implement a new care model for older adults with hip fractures. The new interdisciplinary approach and collaboration between geriatrics and orthopedics focuses on getting patients in and out of surgery and onto rehabilitation in a more timely manner in order to reduce risk of complications and improve outcomes.

The American Geriatrics Society Ortho CoCare program, which is being introduced at both campuses this month, is a national model being used at hospitals across the country and has been shown to improve patient care while being cost-effective to the hospital.
