House call program helps COPD patients reduce hospital visits

Resource Type: Articles

The Community Cares program helps COPD patients stay out of the hospital by helping patients better manage their disease. This promising practice includes home health visits, 24-hour telephone support access, virtual visit computer and smartphone technology and care coordination among nursing, social work and other hospital-based resources. Numbers of readmissions for initial participants dropped from pre-program rates of 61 total hospitalizations to five after two months of implementation.
