Innovation Readiness Assessment: Healthy IDEAS

Houston-based Care for Elders and Baylor College of Medicine are using the Innovation Readiness Assessment to help disseminate Healthy IDEAS (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors), an evidence-based case management program that helps older adults increase their awareness of and manage their depression.

Nearly one in five older adults experiences depressive symptoms, taking an enormous toll on quality of life, ability to function, and overall costs for health care.

Use this tool to see if your organization is ready to implement Healthy IDEAS.
