Under a strategic plan adopted in 2012, the Hartford Foundation will make grants and initiate programs that will put geriatrics expertise to work in all health care settings by: advancing practice change and innovation; supporting team-based care through interdisciplinary education of all health care providers; supporting policies, regulations, and a health care infrastructure that promote better care; and developing and disseminating new evidence-based models that deliver better, more cost-effective health care.
The Foundation will organize its grantmaking under five strategy areas:
