Care Planning

Coordinated Care Across the Continuum

Contact us

In an increasingly complex healthcare environment, your front-line clinicians need access to tools that empower coordinated, evidence-based care. Higher-acuity patients coupled with a greater demand for services means that hospitals and health systems must close communication gaps, streamline clinical workflows, and minimize care variations for the health of their patients and organization.

You’ve heard about the power of longitudinal care planning. Now reimagine coordinated, patient-centered care by combining the patient story, evidence-based care plan guides and standardized assessments into one longitudinal plan of care shared across all care settings and disciplines. That’s the advantage of Elsevier’s Care Planning—the industry’s only EHR-based longitudinal care planning solution.

Deliver safer, coordinated care throughout the patient’s entire journey

Deliver safer, coordinated care throughout the patient’s entire journey

Complex, disjointed care environments coupled with an aging patient population makes it difficult to provide standardized, patient-centered care. Overcome these barriers with longitudinal care plans that break down silos so all care team members are working from the same patient-centered plan of care, regardless of setting or discipline. And with assessments that embrace the patient’s social determinants of health, clinicians are able to look at the person behind the diagnosis to drive an individual plan of care that’s tailored to the patient’s needs. Care teams are also equipped with tools to establish patient-friendly goals and action steps to promote self-management of a patient’s health.

Delivering safe, high-quality patient care is pivotal to maximize reimbursements and achieve regulatory compliance with value-based care models. Elsevier’s overarching care plans help care teams surveil and prevent hospital-acquired conditions to promote better outcomes and shorter lengths of stay to improve the patient experience. And, a robust, evidence-based library of care plan guides and templates ensures standardized care across the entire continuum.

Additionally, Elsevier’s team of clinical experts will help transform the way your interprofessional care teams work together to drive adoption for sustainable success.

To achieve compliance and maximize reimbursement, it’s critical to drive coordinated, patient-centered care built on the latest evidence.
