IPRO Honors Upper Capital Region Health Care Providers
Date:4/9/2009

l Officer at IPRO. "To do this, we need to do a better job of identifying high-risk patients before discharge and implementing post-discharge care plans that address contingencies. We also need to make sure reliable transfer information gets shared across settings."

Health care providers participating in this initiative are establishing systems to ensure reliable transfer of patient information across settings and are working to increase patient/caregiver satisfaction by keeping patients and their family members better informed about their conditions and medications.

In addition to working with health care providers and community leaders, IPRO is helping to empower the community by providing tools and information to help patients better manage their health care, keep track of their medications and support follow-up care post discharge from the hospital. The Personal Health Record (PHR) is an example of one of the helpful tools supported within this project. The PHR is a booklet for people to record, store and share all of their essential health care information with their health care providers.

    Upper Capital Region providers and stakeholders currently participating
    in the project include:

     Adirondack Tri-County Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
     Baptist Health Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
     Capital Care Medical Group
     Capital District Physicians Health Plan
