Kevin and Laurie's True Story of Coordinated Care
Care Coordination Saved Kevin's Life from the Life-threatening Effects of COPD.
Kevin suffers from emphysema, COPD and early stage dementia. Over the course of a year, he had been hospitalized four or five times. His care team at UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Hospital, led by his pulmonologist, devised a plan to address Kevin's health problems as they arose - before they became crises.
A nurse navigator and home care nurse stepped in to monitor Kevin's health, help with his confusion and ensure he's taking his medication. With these resources in place, Kevin's wife has peace of mind. And she says Kevin is much happier.
