VNANE’s Clinically Integrated Network Members Continue Raising the Bar on Outcome Excellence
August 2015- Since creation and implementation of disease specific pathways in Nov. 2014, Visiting Nurse Associations of New England’s (VNANE) Clinically Integrated Network customers have enjoyed impressive improvement on VNANE’s already leading outcomes. With a Q2 showing under 10% at 9.6%, the re-hospitalization rate continues to well surpass Connecticut and Massachusetts State averages. The second quarter’s improvement follows quarter one’s which was a result of the Network’s implementation of the disease specific standards of care.
