Public Poll: “On Your Team: What Older Adults Think About Team Care and Medical Home Services”

The John A. Hartford Foundation is pleased to present the findings of “On Your Team,” its third public poll, examining older adults’ experiences and opinions of team care and the patient-centered medical home.

In “On Your Team,” older adults surveyed expressed high interest and positive experiences with the medical home. A large majority (83%) of those who say they already receive well-coordinated care from a team of providers say team care has improved their health. Even among older adults not currently receiving this type of care, 61 percent say they believe team care would improve their health, and 73 percent would want this type of care, the survey found.

Learn more about what older adults themselves have to say about what works in the effort to transform primary care. For full information on the poll, please explore the following materials:
