Seeing life through the lens of the patient beyond risk mitigation and boosting the capacity to adapt will help providers enhance not only the patient experience but also well-being. This novel framework for a more life-centric model of health will also introduce participants about how the vibrancy and vitality of aging and the correlation of attitude and connections to better health outcomes, lower utilization and healthcare costs (e.g., readmissions). The session will close with an examination of the science behind resiliency – the ability and attitude that ensures you can cope and adapt when life throws you a curveball. Attendees will review literature around optimism and positive perceptions of aging and learn about the three components that help inform the essence of resiliency. The session will examine how we can bring positivity to life, aging and healthcare, and do so with meaning that fosters social connections that can bring satisfaction across all dimensions of life.
