Home Health's True Story of Coordinated Care
Changing the Way Home Health Care is Delivered
UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital was seeing too many patients returning to the hospital. One patient had been readmitted seven times over eight weeks. Home health caregivers were able to identify reasons for the patient's struggles that weren't apparent to hospital caregivers. The patient had limited support at home and wasn't taking medication properly. Thanks to interdisciplinary teamwork, this patient was able to stay at home, and the hospital's overall readmission rates decreased.
