At the risk of stating the obvious, caregivers need care, too. Healthcare organizations that address caregiver needs and involve them in care planning see payoffs in improved outcomes and reduced hospitalizations among the cared-for. This week’s Healthcare Business Weekly Update features a blog post about an online caregiver resource, news on proposed clarifications to the Family Medical Leave Act that could impact those caring for a seriously ill family member, and a link to the August HIN e-survey on caregiver support and education programs. If you’d like to find out what your peers are doing in this area, take the survey and receive a free e-summary of the results this fall.
