In this article, we discussed the updating concept, the implemention mode, and the major concerns of geriatric health services management. The geriatric health services management should be carried out in the following spirit:individual-oriented management, whole-process management, all-round management, all-aspect management, whole population health education, and multidisciplinary participation. The geriatric health services management should take advantages of “multidisciplinary health care mode” and “Internet Plus” platform.
