What is an Age-Friendly Health System?

An Age-Friendly Health System is one which seeks to cause no harm; is guided by what is important to the older adult and by an essential set of practices related to the 4Ms: what matters most, mind, mobility, and medicines. Think of these as four opportunities for greater health and four areas of greatest risk for disability in older adults.
