The accreditations for multiple types of clinicians who serve in a hospital at home model further supports Medically Home’s leadership in driving the safe scaling of high acuity care in the home
BOSTON – July 19, 2023 — Medically Home today announced its applications for accreditation from two organizations have been granted, demonstrating that Medically Home’s educational initiatives meet the rigorous standards of quality set forth by the accrediting bodies. The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) accreditations now support continuing education for nurses and paramedics who provide high-acuity, hospital-at-home care.
Jessica Fernandez, MSN, RN, and director of customer enablement for Medically Home said of the news, “This achievement demonstrates Medically Home’s adherence to industry best practices and ensures the highest standards in education for those going through training. Medically Home’s programs offer nurses and paramedics access to up-to-date information, evidence-based practices, and emerging trends in their respective fields, enabling them to ultimately provide better patient care.”
The ANCC’s credentialing programs accredit healthcare organizations that promote nursing excellence and quality patient outcomes while providing safe, positive work environments, according to the organization’s website, allowing nurses to prepare for new practice roles.
CAPCE approves continuing education for First Responders, EMTs, and Paramedics. According to its website, the organization ensures that EMS providers have access to high quality, standard-driven continuing education activities.
“As more care moves to the home, and high acuity care is provided at home in more geographies and with more health systems, hospitals, and payers, specialized training to support patients admitted to a hospital in their homes represents a competitive advantage for clinicians,” continued Fernandez. “These accreditations set Medically Home apart and reinforce our commitment to excellence and innovation in healthcare.”
Training is available for nurses and paramedics working in Medically Home’s model now in nearly 20 states, serving thousands of patients across the US.
