As recently reported in our Homecoming newsletter:
The VNA of Boston is committed to providing the residents of Greater Boston with efficient, quality, patient centered care. To better serve our community and some of the high risk health problems it faces, Clinical Centers of Excellence (CCEs) were established with focuses in Cardiopulmonary Disease, Diabetes, Maternal Child Health and Wound Care.
Our clinicians care for over 12,000 patients each year. Over 2,900 of those patients have cardiopulmonary issues, 2,600 struggled with diabetes, 2,582 are new mothers and more than 3,000 needed assistance with wound care.
The creation of CCEs will assist us in improving clinical outcomes by ensuring that the care we provide is based on evidence and is continually improving. In each of the next four issues of Homecoming we will go into more detail on each of the CCEs.
