Product Description

Ensuring Effective Coordination of Care by Integrating Patient Teams with a Case Management System.

Improving patient outcomes is a key priority in homecare, and identifying, defining and developing an effective case management system is crucial to improved results. An effective case management system leads to better patient outcomes, financial viability, customer and employee satisfaction, and compliance with the new CoPs. A good case management model can also help achieve continued survey readiness in your agency and it can be easily done, particularly via the EMR.

Join expert speaker Sharon M. Litwin in this webinar and learn how to implement a successful case management system to meet individual patient needs and increase patient outcomes in your agency.

She’ll teach you how to effectively integrate the interdisciplinary team approach, or home care case management approach, to implement a case management model. Also, you’ll get handouts that include tips and strategies on implementing an effective homecare case management model. Whether you are in the early stages of an integrated team approach to patient care, or you have been doing it for years, you will benefit from this session.
