Better Caregiver Education

Better Caregiver Education
As value-based care initiatives slowly shift the focus of the business of healthcare from “transactions” to sustainable health processes, regulatory bodies have been issuing guidelines at a frenzied pace. Growing research on caregiver influence on patient compliance and legislation have physician and healthcare vendors looking for ways to reach these new stakeholders.

The road to health is paved with good intestines!

Better Caregiver Education

To maximize the impact of care post-discharge, 30 states have elected to take part in the CARE Act (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable), which requires providers to 1) record the family caregiver’s name on the patient’s medical record, 2) inform the family caregiver when the patient is to be discharged, and 3) provide the family caregiver an education on the medical tasks to be performed on the patient at home.

Testimonials

Martha is fantastic to work with! I genuinely look forward to my appointments with Martha. I am so grateful that she takes the time to talk with me, genuinely listen to how I am feeling, and thinks outside the box when it comes to making progress on my health goals. My health has changed for the better over the past 3 years—all because of Martha.

Martha Southwick is amazing. She truly cares, she’s passionate, and she’s extremely knowledgeable. She’s been able to solve health puzzles for me that doctors haven’t been able to figure out for years.

Valerie Robinson

I work as a Therapist in the same business building and have had 2 clients speak very highly of her patient care. I’ve actually begun to recommend other clients that are interested in the medication aspect of healing while working through the mental part via talk-therapy or EMDR with my practice.

I’ve been going to Martha for over 13 years, I think that says it all. She is the best!
