HHQI releases best practices on patient self-management

Selman-Holman Associates is a coordinator with this, and it is exciting! HHQI now has released its Best Practice Intervention Package on patient self-management.

Are you familiar with your community’s efforts to improve the 30-day readmission rates of patients to your local facilities? Most communities around the country are addressing this issue in one form or another. Have you been contacted by someone in your community to discuss this issue? If not, you may want to ask yourself, ‘why not?’

As we all know, home health plays a central role in helping patients regain their health and remain in their homes. If you are not currently ‘at the table’ for your community discussions, now is the time to contact other providers –other home health agencies as well as hospitals, nursing homes, SNFs and physician offices – and begin the discussion as to what you can do as a community to improve the quality of care you provide to your citizens as they move from one care setting to another.

The Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) national campaign recently released the focused Best Practice Intervention Package (BPIP) on the topic of Patient Self-Management. This BPIP is much smaller than the previous packages updating the content published in 2011.

If you haven’t downloaded it yet, please do so and share with your community partners. To download this, please go to the HHQI website and either register or login.

The BPIPs are found under the “Education” tab on the blue tool bar.
