Advancing Person-Centered Care Across the Continuum
Please register to download the White paper
Advances in policy, practice and research are demonstrating that implementation of person-centered care (PCC) can improve quality, financial and operational outcomes in long-term care settings. The relevance and benefits of person-centered culture change are hardly limited to long-term care, though. Indeed, a person-centered health care continuum maximizes value and outcomes for patients and residents.
Shorter-length hospital stays, increasing acuity of patients and residents in skilled nursing and assisted living settings… and new financial incentives that promote health management oblige health care leaders across the care continuum to consider the totality of a patient’s health care experience, beyond any one specific setting or episode of care. Collaboration, cooperation, innovation, and mutual learning across the care continuum will be essential ingredients in this new health care landscape.
In this White Paper, you will learn what it takes, in real terms, to create a person-centered continuum of care. Organized around a set of more than 50 specific, actionable criteria that apply across the continuum, you will have a comprehensive framework for defining, implementing and measuring PCC.
