Reimbursement limitations on care in the home are being loosened in the name of better, cheaper care.
Landmark Health was recently featured in a Modern Healthcare article about our changing healthcare system, with a focus on the value of home healthcare for older Americans.
This article shows how Landmark augments the role of primary care physicians by sending interdisciplinary care teams to the homes of patients with complex, chronic conditions. It shines a light on Roxanne Lapointe, a nurse practitioner with Landmark, and her work with Shirley Ehlers, a 73-year-old retired nurse with diabetes, asthma, heart problems and melanoma.
“Landmark is bringing back the house call of the old days but more advanced than a black bag and stethoscope,” said Scott Mancuso, MD, Chief Clinical Officer at Landmark. “It’s teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, pharmacists, psychiatrists and social workers providing resources at home, around the clock for chronically ill patients.”
Beyond Landmark, the article brings forward the industry shift to value-based care and the growing flexibility of Medicare Advantage plans to meet the care needs of their more complex populations.
