VNA of Greater Lowell earns Innovation Award

Congratulations to the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Greater Lowell, which was recently presented with an "Innovation Award" by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts!  is award recognizes the VNA's effort to reduce health care costs by focusing attention on the needs of patients at high risk of hospitalization. Funded by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, this initiative extends VNA's expertise to those who may not be eligible for home health care under current
regulations, but who are having difficulty managing a chronic disease.

As part of this effort, patients with heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and/or diabetes are being coached to live well by becoming more knowledgeable and con dent in managing their own treatment. We know that a patient's quality of life is improved when they do not have to use the Emergency Department or be suddenly hospitalized to treat issues related to their chronic disease. In collaboration with Lowell General Hospital and Lowell Community Health Center, the VNA provides coaching – by telephone, in person and through support and education groups, or tele-health monitoring if needed – home visits by a VNA nurse, assistance from community health workers, and close communication with each individual's physician.

This program is a great example of just one of the ways Circle Health is delivering on our promise of providing Complete connected careSM to our community! To learn more, call 978-459-9343 extension 2529.
