Virginia Commonwealth University as a CMS Independence at Home Demo Site
Pat Polansky and I were in Richmond, VA on 11/5 & 6 to meet with the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center’s House Calls and Transitional Care Team. This 26-year-running program is now 1 of 19 CMS Independence at Home Demonstration Projects. The interprofessional team is caring for some of the most frail, medically complex patients in the Richmond area, keeping them independent for as long as possible and out of the hospital. This is a program that has potential to serve as a national model of advanced practice nurses working collaboratively and leading in practice, changing the way health care is delivered.
