CVS Health is partnering with the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University to provide care tailored to older adults at its MinuteClinic locations. The collaboration, which is supported by a 1-year grant from The John A. Hartford Foundation, will help train more than 2,900 nurse practitioners and physician assistants who work in MinuteClinic locations across the country. The John A. Hartford Foundation support comes through its Age-Friendly Health Systems Initiative with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. A Case Western Reserve team will be placed in select MinuteClinic locations to help execute the Age-Friendly initiative's cornerstone framework. MinuteClinic locations that serve a significant older adult population will be pilot locations for Age-Friendly care, but the program is expected to eventually expand to all 1,100 U.S. MinuteClinic locations nationwide.
