Webinar | Keeping Family Caregivers in the Loop with enTouch

Posted on Feb 19, 2019 1:34:35 PM by Prepared Health in Family Caregivers, in Webinar

Family caregivers are a valuable part of a patient's care team. We’ve seen that the social determinants of health data emerging from the home--day-to-day care tasks like home health visits, physical therapy or how a patient is responding to medication--have a bigger chance of impacting outcomes and preventing readmissions than traditional clinical data. But family caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones on a daily basis often are left out of the conversation.

Prepared Health's digital enTouch network makes it easy to link your agency, family members and others on the care team, so you can update a patient's progress and quickly share it with the entire team. Register to watch our webinar highlighting the power of engaging the family caregiver and how you can leverage the enTouch platform.
