PACE3: Make Home Care Services a Strategic Advantage
You can’t keep your participants in the PACE Center 24/7, that would defeat the purpose of the program after all. But what happens in the time between center visits when your participants are at home? This is the greatest risk in the PACE model, but it doesn’t have to be.
In our last story we discussed making home care services a strategic advantage. The first step towards improving the quality and effectiveness of home care services for your participants is to modernize the workflows for these services.
