Karen Ann Quinlan Home Health Care takes quality initiative.
Phillipsburg, NJ – February 2, 2010- Karen Ann Quinlan Home Health Care has joined The Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign for 2010. The HHQI is a grassroots movement designed to unite home health stakeholders and multiple health care settings under the shared vision of reducing avoidable hospitalizations and improving medication management.
“What this means for the consumer is that when shopping for health care, people can look for their best local results by visiting this site”. Cathy Shane—Director of Nursing for Karen Ann Quinlan Home Health Care.
The site collects and processes hard data from patient care results based on documented patient feedback from each organization, and then makes an analysis of where that organization does well or is lacking. “For example this type of data would answer the question how comfortable was the patient in comparison to other home health care providers?” “All this is an effort to increase quality of care and then to let the public know,” Shane continues.
