In 2017, AARP reported that about 41 million U.S. family caregivers perform roughly $470 billion worth of unpaid labor a year. Since then, the number of caregivers has increased to 53 million, meaning that more than one out of five Americans are caregivers. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant shift in care from assisted living facilities and nursing homes to home settings.

Critical Success Factors in Care Management for Building a Better Care Model for Seriously Ill Patients Living at Home
Turn-Key Health, a CareCentrix company, has reimagined the home as a destination of care for seriously ill patients. In our latest white paper, “Building a Better Model for Care at Home,” we demonstrate how home-based palliative care (HBPC) for individuals with a serious or advanced illness successfully aligns treatment decisions with personal goals, preferences and values; enables payors to reduce emergency department visits, hospitalizations and 30-day readmissions; addresses clinical and non-clinical issues, such as social determinants of health (SDoH); and provides an opportunity to enhance member and caregiver engagement and care coordination.
Telehealth Visits Enable Home-Based Palliative Care Clinicians to Connect with Patients and Caregivers
Turn-Key Health, a CareCentrix company, is expanding its use of virtual visits via phone or telehealth by leveraging CareCentrix’s strategic alliance with Synzi, a leading technology platform for post-acute care. The use of telehealth in an integrated approach with in-person, home-based palliative care creates a more robust patient experience and better patient engagement.
