Digital health tools and technologies are transforming health care and making significant impacts on how health and care information are collected, used, and shared to achieve best outcomes. As most of the efforts are still focused on clinical settings, the wealth of health information generated outside of clinical settings is not being fully tapped. This is especially true for children with medical complexity (CMC) and their families, as they frequently spend significant hours providing hands-on medical ca...
Approximately 14% of Medicare beneficiaries are readmitted to a hospital within 30 days of home health care admission. Individuals with dementia account for 30% of all home health care admissions and are at high risk for readmission. Our primary objective was to determine the association between dementia severity at admission to home health care and 30-day potentially preventable readmissions (PPR) during home health care. A secondary objective was to develop a dementia severity scale from Outcome and Asse...
Home clinical care (HCC) includes home-based medical care (HBMC-medical visits in the home) and skilled home health care (skilled nursing or therapy visits). Over 7 million older adults would benefit from HCC; however, we know surprisingly little about homebound older adults and HCC.
Pediatric Home Service (PHS) in Roseville, Minnesota, has provided home care for children with medical complexity for over 30 years. This article describes the PHS program for educating and training home care nurses (HCNs). Since the inception of the company, advanced training for family and professional caregivers of ventilator-dependent children has been an important focus. The current program for HCN has three components and incorporates simulation and in-home training. Standardizing educational requirem...
As the population of ventilator-dependent children with tracheostomies grows, there are increasing demands to shift the care of technology-dependent children from hospital to home. Home care nurses are an integral part in the continuum of care for these children and their families after hospital discharge. Home care nurses help to facilitate a safe transition from the hospital and allow families and children to thrive in their home and community. The purpose of this article is to describe best practices in ...
Decades of research confirm that children and adolescents in out-of-home care (foster family, residential care) have much greater healthcare needs than their peers. A systematic literature review was conducted to evaluate organizational healthcare models for this vulnerable group.
Even though children with medical complexity represent less than 1 percent of the US pediatric population, they are among the costliest users of the health care system. Much of the care for these children is delivered in home and community-based settings and covered by Medicaid waivers under Section 1915(c). Expenditures related to these waivers have been steadily increasing, with most recent estimates showing spending that exceeds $48 billion per year. Little is known about these waivers' economic impact...
The purpose of this study is to explore the daily care experiences of caregivers of children who require medical technology. Specific aims were to gain an understanding of their perceptions of (a) how caregivers manage symptoms for their children who require medical technology at home, (b) why the caregivers seek emergency department (ED) and hospital care, and (c) what the caregivers need to manage their child's symptoms at home. The research question was asked, what are the education, skills, and support ...
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends an emergency information form (EIF) for children with medical complexity (CMC) to facilitate emergency care. We sought to increase the EIF completion rate at our children's hospital's CMC clinic and to evaluate the effect on caregiver and emergency department (ED) provider opinion of preparation, comfort, and communication.
Pharmaceutical manufacturer medical information (MI) departments play an important role in providing medical information to health care professionals (HCPs) and patients. A survey was conducted to gather insights on the utility of MI services and to understand the information needs/preferences to support therapy decisions.
As value-based care continues to expand, more children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will be treated by accountable care organizations (ACOs), provider organizations seeking to improve population health while reducing costs. To inform ACO strategies for children with ASD, this study compared health care expenditures of children insured by a Medicaid managed care organization, empaneled to a safety net ACO, with ASD, asthma, and neither diagnosis. Compared to other study groups, children with ASD were ...
In 2010, the US Veterans Health Administration (VHA) implemented one of the largest patient-centered medical home (PCMH) models in the United States, the Patient Aligned Care Team initiative. Early evaluations demonstrated promising associations with improved patient outcomes, but limited evidence exists on the longitudinal association of PCMH implementation with changes in health care utilization.
User-friendly information at the point of care should be well structured, rapidly accessible, and comprehensive. Also, this information should be trustworthy, as it will be used by health care practitioners to practice evidence-based medicine. Therefore, a standard, validated tool to evaluate the trustworthiness of such point-of-care information resources is needed.
Home care service in Norway is struggling to meet the increasing demand for health care under restricted budget constraints, although one-fourth of municipal budgets are dedicated to health services. The integration of Web-based technology in at-home care is expected to enhance communication and patient involvement, increase efficiency and reduce cost. DigiHelse is a Web-based platform designed to reinforce home care service in Norway and is currently undergoing a development process to meet the predefined ...
Early childhood education programs provide a setting to reach children and parents to modify home environments to prevent obesity. The Healthy Opportunities for Physical Activity and Nutrition Home (HOP'N) Home project was a novel approach that linked Family Child Care Homes (FCCH) to home environments by developing children's asking skills for healthful home environmental change through curricular activities.
Children with medical technology dependence (MTD) are frequently readmitted to the hospital. However, due to their medical fragility, it is often difficult to untangle the root causes for readmissions to identify the most effective preventive approaches. We sought to explore environmental and family factors driving hospital readmissions for children with MTD.
Although searching for health information on the internet has offered clear benefits of rapid access to information for seekers such as patients, medical practitioners, and students, detrimental effects on seekers' experiences have also been documented. Health information overload is one such side effect, where an information seeker receives excessive volumes of potentially useful health-related messages that cannot be processed in a timely manner. This phenomenon has been documented among medical professio...
To tackle the rising healthcare expenditure in an ageing society in Japan, home healthcare has been promoted over the past several years. However, there is a dearth of literature on total costs incurring for home healthcare. In this study, we conducted a cross-sectional study among patients, who received home healthcare in the month of May, 2018. Direct healthcare costs and patients' clinical characteristics were collected from medical records and long-term care databases (n = 166). Indirect costs were es...
Physical activity (PA) provides important health benefits to children, and a large percentage of children's PA occurs at home. The purpose of this study was to examine the associations between psychosocial, home, and neighborhood environmental factors and children's reported PA at home and in the neighborhood, during the transition from elementary to high school.
Community acquired blood stream infections (CA-CLABSI) are a major source of morbidity and mortality for pediatric patients. Many organizations discharge pediatric patients to home health agencies to care for central lines. To reduce the incidence of CA-CLABSIs requires a concentrated effort between hospitals and home health agencies. It is important for home health agencies to be accountable for the care and maintenance they provide to patients with central lines. Local Problem: At a large children's hospi...
Millions of children cared for by their grandparents or other kin without a biological parent present are not part of the foster care system. Maltreatment may have precipitated out-of-home care arrangements, but most children in informal kinship care are not being tracked or receiving services. Importantly, the extent of previous child welfare involvement and its association with well-being among this population are not well known.
In 2018, SE Health (formerly Saint Elizabeth Health Care) delivered care and support to more than 500,000 people when and where they needed it. We delivered many of these health services to Canadians in their own homes, supporting independent living and freeing up hospital beds for acute care needs. As care in one's home becomes more commonplace, it is critical that Canadians know they are safe.
Children with medical complexity (CMC) have high care needs, often unmet by traditional healthcare models. In response to this need, the Complex Care Service (CCS) at The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH), Melbourne was created. While preliminary parent satisfaction data were available, we lacked knowledge of how the various components of the expanded service were valued and contributed to overall caregiver satisfaction.
The United States is home to many immigrants and refugees; therefore, pediatricians who care for these vulnerable patients must be familiar with their unique medical, developmental, and psychosocial needs. Thankfully, there are resources that describe the recommended components of the medical visit for newly arrived immigrants and refugees. In this article, we review these resources while focusing on the resettlement process, mental health, trauma-informed care resources, and other important psychosocial ne...
