Dear Healthcare at Home Colleague,

Our ongoing quest to help you conquer staff shortage challenges takes us this week to nurses. Staff writer Darcey Trescone explores the relationship between evidence-based care planning and clinician satisfaction. Her interview with Tammy Purcell, MSN, RNC-OB, a Clinical Executive with Elsevier will walk you through the positive impact of evidence-based medicine and care planning, the history of Elsevier's relationship with the VNAA, digitizing that association's paper-based manuals, and how all of it leads to employee satisfaction and heightened loyalty to an employer. If better care plans, improved patient outcomes, and clinician satisfaction matter to you, be sure to catch Darcey's interview, "Evidence-Based Medicine — Is Your Clinical Team Providing It?"



We Found New Legal Help for Small Agencies

If you operate a small agency, whether private duty personal care or skilled nursing home health or hospice, you know how important and how expensive legal advice can be. So many documents are required to keep your business afloat and in compliance, costs can mount up quickly. We met an old friend at Home Care 100 last month who informed us about a national law firm whose home care division is preparing a searchable, customizable database of home care-specific legal documents, online trainings, and legal guidance. Read our interview with Angelo Spinolla and Linda Kraus Donev, "Database of Home Care Legal Documents Available Online."


Attention HIT specialists and software developers. The Office of the National Coordinator of Health IT asked us to tell you about a long list of opportunities for IT professionals. From a virtual annual meeting event to a series of online resources and webinars, everyone will find something to enhance their HIT expertise. Skim through the list we prepared and pick the resources that match your needs. "ONC Annual Meeting is Just the Start"



Vendor Watch

Nurses, aides, oxygen tank deliver persons, therapists, social workers, hospital@home programs, the list of people surrounding a home care patient can go on and on. Coordinating services is often low on each provider's priority list, often leading to confusion, even anxiousness, in elderly patients who need it the least. We introduced Dina to you a couple of times in recent years, on the occasion of announcements of their major investments and winning significant home care clients. Now the care coordination platform and networking company has been recognized by Inc. Magazine for its rapid growth. You will learn about their impact on healthcare in our interview with CEO Ashish Shah. 

Have a great week. Keep making a difference!
