Providing quality and regular Chronic Disease Education to your clinicians can feel like something that you have to do, rather than an initiative for Healthcare providers to improve Outcomes and increase reimbursement.  However, this Case Study demonstrates just the opposite! 

Education is key to assuring quality care for patients. The better educated the staff, the lower the costs for the entire health care system.

A nursing home that educated its sub-acute staff using Kenyon HomeCare Consulting courses on chronic disease dramatically reduced hospital readmissions and improved the quality of care. Consequently, the facility was asked to participate in two ACOs and was included in a prestigious grant award.

This is a case study on this amazing turnaround.

Care Coordination, Time Management, Resource Allocation, Episodic and Regulatory Compliance, Teaching Skills and Documentation Best Practices are just some of what are required of Case Managers.  It is hard to be good at some of this – much less all of it!   With outcomes-based reimbursement becoming more and more of the norm, Case Managers are the key lynch-pin in driving the clinical and financial health of an agency.  This education will enable these individuals to not just be good at what they do, but to truly achieve Greatness in how they manage their patients’ care.
