Next Step in Care: Partnering Family Caregivers with Practitioners

Next step in careNext Step in CareTM, an initiative of the United Hospital Fund, helps family caregivers and health care professionals work better together. This set of online tools is designed to improve the quality of care patients receive, especially during their move from one care setting to another.

Since many patients with chronic illness or long-term disabilities move frequently between hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes and home, Next Step in Care helps family caregivers and practitioners work together to improve the patient's care during the transition. This also means that patients will have fewer hospital readmissions by improving medication management and promoting better outcomes.

EmblemHealth partnered with the United Hospital Fund to support the essential role the family caregiver plays in their loved one's overall care.
