VNANE – GIS
VNANE or Visiting Nurse Association of New England provides health care services (i.e. skilled nursing, therapy, health aides) to homebound patients in order to prevent the high necessity of institutional services. Most patients preferred to be treated at their homes because it is the most comfortable environment. Unfortunately, home health care is under studied and difficult to understand than institutions. VNANE’s mission is to ensure and provide better care, better health, and lower costs to home health care patients.
Project Goals And Expectations
Overall, the primary objective is to map population factors and home health care provider costs, quality, and outcomes. Furthermore is to research and build appropriate population and home health care provider databases, create maps to inform state policy makers, facilitate new delivery systems understand the risk/needs of their patient populations, and to assess performances of home health care providers.
