GEDC Partners work together to transform ED care of older adults; catalyze action at local and national levels to support these care transformations; and evaluate the impact of these new models of care for older people.

GEDC is comprised of Emergency Departments dedicated to accomplishing these goals together, and sharing best practices in order to accelerate the evolutions in care models needed to improve emergency care for older adults.
