Situation Report | September 13, 2021
On Thursday, September 9, HCA with state and regional hospital association partners, officially launched phase II of the Statewide Hospital-Home Care Collaborative initiative funded under a grant to HCA by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation.
The Collaborative is led by HCA in conjunction with the Healthcare (hospital) Association of New York State (HANYS) and the Iroquois Healthcare Association (IHA), the upstate regional hospital association.
Featured in the September 9 launch was the Hospital-Home Care-Physician “acute care at home” model of the Catholic Health System of Long Island, Catholic Home Care and the system’s primary care physician practice.
The session, which can be accessed here, is comprised of the “trifecta” of the three partners collaborating to care for extremely complex and needy COVID-related patients at home, who would otherwise be or remain hospitalized.
The model integrates and coordinates primary care physicians, tele-monitoring and in-home skilled nursing and related services that has produced phenomenal results in care, satisfaction, outcome and reduction and avoidance of hospital days. The Collaborative partners are currently examining other types of complex, acute-level conditions to target under this program.
HCA extends great appreciation and congratulations to our colleagues at the Catholic Health System of Long Island on this transformative care model!
This model and others that HCA will be featuring on a monthly basis throughout the remainder of 2021, and well-into 2022, are provided as prototypes for statewide hospital, home care, physician and other core partner emulation. These models will follow the series of prototypes that we featured and presented in our 2020 phase-I of the Collaborative, and that are available for on-demand access on the HCA Collaboration webpage. There, members will also find tabs to collaboration resources of all types to assist you in adopting your own variations of these models and/or in otherwise working with core partners in collaborative design.
The next session is Wednesday, September 29, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., featuring a collaborative of the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) and MVHS Home Care. As the new state and federal policies will be all the more emphasizing collaborative, integrated models of care and coverage, HCA is pleased to make this resource available to you, and encourages all members to participate in these sessions. And, a reminder that if you are not able to attend live, the sessions will be available for download and access on-demand.
