Shaping longitudinal care plans for the future of healthcare
By Tiffany McCauley, RN, MSN, Clinical Executive, Elsevier, and Donna Mayo, RN, MSN, Senior Director, Interprofessional Workflow, Elsevier
The problems associated with a fragmented healthcare system are well documented and acknowledged as barriers to the delivery of quality, cost-effective care; compliance with regulatory and legal mandates; and appropriate reimbursement under value-based care. To overcome these barriers, a call to action has been raised to focus on improving care coordination through the implementation of longitudinal, patient-centered care. Despite the obvious benefits of coordinated care, however, many healthcare organizations remain mired in the traditional model, which focuses on acute-care needs and treatment of chronic disease in an episodic manner
