UCLA 20-Minute Medical Exam General Office Forms Physicians are unable to provide high quality of care for conditions affecting older persons within the context of busy primary care practices. The Assessing Care of the Vulnerable Elderly (ACOVE) project, identified elders at increased risk for death or functional decline and created quality indicators based on literature review and expert panel for 22 conditions. They found that compliance for geriatric conditions was worse than for general medical conditions (31% versus 52%). Dr. David Reuben, from UCLA, has created a series of screening tools, office visit forms and other resources that are focused on the identification of issues in the elderly.
