A crucial component of what we do every day at Blue Water Homecare is to collaborate with an amazing group of certified healthcare professionals known as case managers.
Case managers help orchestrate the assistance a patient needs between hospital and rehab stays, or a return home following an injury, illness, or serious procedure. And, this is often conducted among multiple different providers.
There is much strategy involved, and equally as much compassion and sensitivity, that goes into getting patients, their families, medical team, and other caretakers all on the same page.
Effective and seamless case management encourages:
- Better adherence to medical advice
- Easier navigation with insurance providers
- Overall improved administering of a patient’s care
As this week is National Case Management Week (October 10-16), Blue Water would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to all those who work tirelessly on behalf of the families we collectively serve.
“As an agency leader, it is important to have a close connection with case managers because they are the professionals who match the patient’s care needs with the best in-home provider,” says Blue Water Homecare founder and COO, Jennifer Prescott, RN, MSN, CDP.
When someone is discharged from a hospital, or rehabilitation facility, each client has very specific and individual needs.
“Setting up the patient to safely be discharged home takes a team,” explains Prescott. “We pride ourselves in ensuring the transition to home includes meeting with hospital or facility case managers, therapists, and any other specialists involved.”
At Blue Water Homecare, most of our coordination is done with hospital case managers, rehab facility case managers, and geriatric caretakers. We work very closely with these individuals to create a cohesive support team in order to best meet the needs of our clients and their families.
Thank you, case managers, for all that you do–we are proud to work alongside you!
