Continuum of Care
Explain how the concept continuum of care is used in case management and within your organization. What new services/programs are your organization currently evaluating or performing that are assisting patients to reach their health goals? How do these services/programs impact the bottom line of the organization?
Quality indicators, such as accessibility, appropriateness, continuity, effectiveness, efficacy, efficiency, timeliness, patient perspective issues, and safety, can influence quality of care. Choose one indicator and discuss its influence on care inventory environments, including local, state, national, and global. Discuss the practice of linking hospital reimbursement to performance outcomes.
