November, 2021

It's National Hospice and Home Health Care Month!

At a time when the stresses of a multi-year global pandemic have placed unprecedented burdens on our healthcare system, much attention has turned to providing a wide range of healthcare services in the home setting.

We want to take a moment to spotlight a client whom we're incredibly proud to support. Well Care is an integrated, post-acute care company that employs more than 800 people in providing home health and personal care services across more than 40 counties in North Carolina.

From Daniel Thompson, Vice President, Compliance and Quality at Well Care, “Home-based Care presents a unique set of challenges when it comes to managing risk and ensuring the safety of our patients and staff because they are not all within the four walls of a facility. Before we transitioned to Clarity's Healthcare SafetyZone system, we had staff completing incident reports on writeable PDFs and manually tracking incidents on excel files that were difficult to use, cumbersome and nearly impossible to glean useful information from. With the help of the SafetyZone and the power of its reporting tools we have increased the ease with which our staff can report safety concerns or incidents (less than 2 minutes!) and we have the ability to quickly identify trends so that we can enact corrective measures to keep our patients healthy, happy, and at HOME!”
