The HCSRN-OAICs AGING Initiative is an exciting opportunity to build upon the collective and complementary knowledge, resources, and capabilities of the HCSRN and the OAICs to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda focused on older adults with MCCs under a new HCSRN-OAICs AGING (“Advancing Geriatrics Infrastructure & Network Growth”) Initiative.

The goal of the AGING Initiative is to bridge the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) with the Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Centers (OAIC) to create a national resource to nurture and advance an interdisciplinary research agenda focused on older adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCCs). These efforts will lay the foundation to address the knowledge gaps that exist regarding the health and healthcare of these understudied patients.
