Featured Webinar Replay:

Functional Decline in Chronic Care Patients

Excerpt from presentation by Patricia Zinkus, director of case management at Fallon Community Health Plan:

"Current information demonstrates that the frail senior members who do not understand their physician’s plan of care are transitioning from one level of care to another or are especially at risk for preventable admission, readmission and ER visits. There is a pamphlet for our Home Run program that identifies the collaborative effort between the VNA, the Fallon Clinic and Fallon Community Health Plan, which underscores the fact that we are not replacing the PCP."
