Falls at older age form a major health concern since they might have serious short and long-term consequences for both elderly individuals and the healthcare system in terms of monetary, medical attention and psychological costs. Marjan Askari explores the role of information technology (IT) for prevention and management of falls both in general practice and hospital settings. She specifically addresses the question of how disease management concepts, process modeling, prognostic models and decision support can contribute to a better management of falls shared by general practices, an emergency department and a geriatrics outpatient clinic.
