How does preventive care help in keeping seniors in India out of hospitals?

Written By Samarth Staff | Medically Reviewed by Dr. Anup Bagchi, MBBS, Geriatric specialist

Preventive care among seniors has demonstrated significant benefits in reducing hospital admissions, healthcare costs, and the incidence of preventable conditions. A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that multifactorial fall prevention programs reduced the rate of fall-related hospitalizations by 26% (source: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society). Studies have shown that access to preventive care services, including regular check-ups, screenings, and vaccinations, can lead to a reduction in hospital admissions among seniors by addressing health issues early and preventing complications (source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

Cost savings:
Preventive care has been associated with significant cost savings in healthcare expenditures by reducing the need for hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and expensive treatments for preventable conditions (source: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality).

Impact of chronic disease management:
Preventive care services aimed at managing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, have been shown to reduce hospitalizations related to these conditions by promoting medication adherence, lifestyle modifications, and regular monitoring (source: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases). Preventive care serves as a proactive approach to maintaining seniors’ health, preventing avoidable hospitalizations, and promoting their independence, well-being, and quality of life in India.
