Description
Chapter 7: Community-Based Nursing and Home Care  The focus of community-based nursing is the illness-oriented care of individuals and families throughout the lifespan.  Many factors are changing the health care system, including socioeconomic status, demographics, prevalence and type of illness, technology, and increased consumerism.  The goals of case management are to provide quality care along a continuum, decrease fragmentation of care across many settings, enhance the patient’s qualify of life, and contain cost.  The use of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) has had a dramatic impact on health care.  Health care is constrained by third-party payer cost containment.  Community-based settings where nursing care is delivered include ambulatory care, transitional care, and long-term care (skilled nursing, intermediate care, and residential care facilities).
