During our launch webinar on Sept. 3, we introduced hospitals and home care providers to the IHA, HCA and HANYS Statewide Hospital-Home Care Collaborative for COVID-19 and Beyond eLearning series.
This collaborative is supported by a grant from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, designed to promote pre- and post-hospital collaboration among hospitals and home care providers to address patients’ needs not only in the COVID-19 pandemic but also on a lasting basis.
We recently announced a key part of this program: seven (7) upcoming webinars free of charge for all hospital and home care organizations in New York State.
Each webinar – featured below – includes a pairing of hospital and home care faculty who’ve implemented an innovative and replicable program model of collaboration to share with peers for adaptation on a statewide basis.
All webinars will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. To register, please click here.
