Optimizing Home Health Care: Enhanced Value And Improved Outcomes

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, February 26, 2013, the Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation together with the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine will present a journal supplement featuring articles from leading experts, researchers, and medical professionals in home health.  The authors discuss new advanced models of home care, innovative technologies including telehealth, and the valuable role home health has in reducing hospital admissions and improving care transitions.  

Home health care services are increasingly in demand as our nation struggles to care for a rapidly aging population that is living longer with more chronic conditions. This supplement serves as a resource to policy makers as they look to reform post-acute care, keep patients healthy and independent at home, and reduce the financial burden on our current health care delivery system.

A panel of supplement authors will present their articles in detail and discuss how public policy will impact the delivery of home health and the value it brings to our healthcare delivery system.
