Private Duty is a broad term used for agencies that provide in-home aide services – public, third-party or private pay, non-medical home care, companion/sitter services and private duty nursing services.

As a private duty agency are you aware of the opportunities that the transformation in today’s health care environment brings to Private Duty?

Are your services marketed in a way that help acute care entities understand what you have to offer in helping with care transitions and chronic disease management?

Have you heard of care transitions, accountable care organizations (ACO’s), medical neighborhoods or other transition models? 

Come explore how services provided in your agency coupled with enhanced aide training - such as in falls risk prevention; person centered thinking; chronic disease symptoms; and, the O R R method (observation, reporting and recording) - can help bring your agency to the forefront in ensuring smooth care transitions, chronic disease management and preventing hospitalizations.  Also discussed and shared will be tools that your agencies can use for assessment and teaching! Don’t be left out!
