How We Improve Care Transitions
Working with hospitals as patients discharge to provide EOL care in homes. Hospice is a care management model and is effective in reducing readmissions regardless of hospice length of stay. Working with CHESS to understand and develop measures for evaluating quality hospice care.
Most of hospice care fits in this definition – we case manage care in the home – frequently following an acute episode. But we are also working to promote greater use of advance care plans and the MOST form throughout our region and NC. We house a regional coalition for compassionate care, and will be also supporting the NC Partnership for Compassionate Care
WFBH Novena Health Various Skilled Nursing Homes EMS providers
In particular our regional coalition for compassionate care is primarily led by WFBH, Novant Health, and Hospice & Palliative CareCenter. We also include anyone interested in participating such as EMS providers (and paramedicine staff in particular), other community groups helping those with advanced illness. Our coalition created the Got Plans? Materials and uses that to educate about advance care plans. We are looking to expand our efforts in different ways including both consumer and provider education and support.
How We Measure Our Efforts
Hospitalizations ED visits
At this point we have focused on the number educated and informed through the Got Plans? Workshops. We have not yet used the website volume as a measure of success. We have not formally counted the number who completed advance directives as we sometimes don’t have the right type of witnesses or notaries present, and the MOST requires MD involvement. But we are evaluating all options!
