Our mission is to enable seniors to successfully age in place, with access to high-quality, affordable health and support services that preserve and protect their dignity, quality of life and independence.
West Health includes the nonprofit and non-partisan Gary and Mary West Health Institute and the Gary and Mary West Health Policy Center. We collaborate with the Gary and Mary West Foundation and all have a singular focus on enabling successful aging.
Through applied medical research, policy and advocacy and outcomes-based funding, we focus on studying, developing and advancing scalable, sustainable and more affordable healthcare delivery models that enable seniors to successfully age.
America’s population is aging rapidly. Every eight seconds someone turns 65 – a trend that will continue until 2030. Our mission is to enable seniors to successfully age in place, with access to high-quality, affordable health and support services that preserve and protect their dignity, quality of life and independence.
We are developing scalable and sustainable home- and community-based healthcare delivery models that enable successful aging, conducting research to validate their effectiveness, and identifying appropriate corresponding payment systems. Our goal is to have these models serve as a catalyst for broader adoption of improved care for seniors in San Diego and across the nation.
We are focused on advancing senior-appropriate acute, long-term and chronic care models that support independence.
Medical device interoperability – seamless communication of health information among medical devices and across health systems – is a cornerstone to improving healthcare coordination and delivery.
Transforming our healthcare model to make it more continuous and responsive will improve outcomes for patients who are suffering from, or who are at risk for, chronic diseases.
The West Health Policy Center provides research and education to advance policy and payment reform in conjunction with the West Health Institute’s advocacy efforts in support of enabling seniors to successfully age in place.
