Bridge Model Receives National Attention: Analysis Shows 20% Readmissions Reduction

Health & Medicine is proud to share some program updates from the Bridge Model – an innovative social work based intervention that focuses on the medical and psychosocial needs of older adults as they transition from hospital to home. In 2010, Health & Medicine helped to develop Bridge and continues to support the expansion of this successful program which has now trained over 60 replication sites across the U.S.

As part of the model’s growing national impact, two publications—the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society and Journal of Gerontological Social Work—recently released articles about Bridge.
