    Abstract

    © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. The Community Assessment of Risk & Treatment Strategies (CARTS) is an evolving integrated care pathway for community-dwelling older adults, designed to screen for and prevent frailty through the use of innovative, novel targeted risk screening instruments, comprehensive geriatric assessment, tailored interventions and integrated patient-centred multi-disciplinary monitoring. This multimodal service aims to positively affect risk and frailty transitions, to reduce adverse healthcare outcomes and achieve the European Innovation Partnerships on Active and Healthy Ageing’s (EIP-AHA) goal of improved healthy life years. The CARTS programme builds on the activities and deliverables defined within Action Plan A3 of the EIP-AHA ‘Prevention and early diagnosis of frailty, both physical and cognitive, in older people’, aiming to use information and communications technology (ICT) to facilitate its implementation in clinical practice. The CARTS instruments have been piloted in Ireland as well as in Portugal, Spain and Australia. An update on the research conducted to date and future plans are presented.
