Promoting Readmission Reductions at University of Pennsylvania Home Care

Readmissions reduction is a primary focus for the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) Home Care team, specifically for the Caring Way Program. The Caring Way Program’s goal is to provide the best in specialized palliative care so patients can remain at home, preserve their independence and adapt to lifestyle changes during this challenging time. Caring Way is designed for patients who are still receiving treatment while hospice is most appropriate for patients who wish to focus on comfort care.
