Mission Statement

 Partners HealthCare at Home is a division of the Partners Continuing Care Network, and we share a mission to improve quality of life for people experiencing injury, illness, and disability. Partners HealthCare at Home delivers compassionate home health care and community based services to enhance the quality of life for those we serve. Our vision is to be the leader in delivering a broad range of innovative and integrated health care solutions that help people stay in their homes safely with comfort and dignity. 


Background Statement

Partners Home Care d/b/a Partners HealthCare at Home was developed to bring together a group of home health agencies in eastern Massachusetts within the Partners HealthCare system to offer high quality, centralized care for patients in a broad geographic area. In 1999, theSouthShore’s Affiliated Community VNA merged with Greater Boston’s MGH/Spaulding Home Health Agency, which also subsumed theNorthEndCommunityHealthCenter’s Home Health Department. Newton-Wellesley’s Home Heath Services joined the group in 2000, and Partners Home Care was born. In 2002, the VNA of Greater Salem joined Partners Home Care, as did HealthCare Dimensions Hospice. Today, there is one organization called Partners HealthCare at Home providing home care services to more than 140 communities in theSouthShore, Greater Boston, MetroWest, and theNorthShore. Divided into regions and further divided into clinical teams, this large organization still maintains a community focus, providing excellent, locally integrated care which is customized to each patient, family, and community we serve.

Impact Statement

Our team of 1,200 skilled nurses, therapists, social workers, and home health aides provide 360,000 visits annually to 25,000 patients, serving people across the age spectrum from birth to more than 100 years old. Partners HealthCare at Home, one of the largest home health agencies in New England, provides a wide spectrum of care in the home designed to meet the complex needs of each patient and to ensure optimal independence and quality of life. Our goal is to serve all who need us regardless of their ability to pay, and thus Partners HealthCare at Home provides approximately $1.2 million in un-reimbursed care annually for patients who lack health insurance or are underinsured.
In early 2011, Partners HealthCare at Home announced that it was named to the 2010 HomeCare Elite™, a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in theUnited States. This annual review identifies the top 25 percent of agencies. The HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health industry. This is the second year in a row that we received this honor.
In the coming year, our goal is to continue to ensure even patients with complex medical needs can remain in their homes and communities.  Through programs such as telemonitoring, Home-Based Chronic Care Management, Lifeline, and others, we will continue to reduce re-hospitalizations and emergency department visits while improving quality of life or our patients.

Needs Statement

Home care services make it possible for patients to remain in their homes and communities. According to the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, who compared the cost of a day in the hospital or skilled nursing facility with a home health visit, cost savings with home care can be significant. Partners HealthCare at Home is able to provide patients who have high levels of need and a variety of complex diagnoses with this option through clinical programs unique in our area, including telemonitoring, wound care from Board-certified nurses, and chronic care management.
Our most pressing needs continue to be for both the technology and tools needed to provide care in the home, the skilled staffing needed to fill the role of home care clinician, and funds to cover those with inadequate insurance coverage for home health services.  Specifically, we are seeking funds to build our telemonitoring program, which has already been shown to reduce rehospitalization for people with serious chronic illness.  The cost of replacing our aging fleet of telemonitoring equipment is more than $100,000.  We are also seeking funds to support further development of Home Based Chronic Care Management, a program which is designed to help clinicians empower patients to take control of their chronic illness and make better choices for their health.  This program will require training for all clinical staff at a cost of more than $200,000.  In addition, we never turn a patient away for inability to pay, and therefore we provide care for those who lack coverage for home care.  We continually seek charitable support to cover this cost.

Under Development


Home Based Chronic Care Management

 With an increasing number of people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart failure, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) we have developed the Home Based Chronic Care Management (HBCCM) program. HBCCM is an evidence-based program designed in response to the need to move away from the acute care focus that is central to our healthcare system. HBCCM supports and empowers patients through a team-based approach which equips them to take responsibility for their own health while improving coordination of care. The program focuses on proactive care planning and assisting patients to navigate an increasingly complex healthcare system. The program uses health coaching and goal setting; rather than telling the patients what changes they need to make, clinicians use motivational interviewing techniques which help patients identify their own motivation for making health-related behavior changes. 
Budget  $200,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Home Health Care
Population Served General/Unspecified Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success 
 The goal of this project is to improve quality of life and health outcomes for seniors with chronic disease through improved self-management, increased self-efficacy, and improvement in coordination of care. Because one clinician can provide monitoring and telephone support to 80 patients per day, this is a cost effective approach to chronic disease intervention and facilitating self-management.

We anticipate the following outcomes:
80% of patients will develop realistic and acheivabke goals related to their chronic disease
80% of patients will report improved understanding of the disease process and greater confidence in managing the disease process
50% of patients will use daily telemonitoring to track vital signs in collaboration with the home care clinician in order to understand the impact of health behaviors
Decrease in hospital admissions and emergency department visits for these patients
Increase in overall patient satisfaction


Program Long-Term Success 
We anticipate lowered health care costs and improved quality of life for people with multiple chronic diseases as a result of this program.  The program will lead to patients feeling more empowered and in control of their chronic illness and of their health.  Patients will set incremental goals with their home care clinician which they can realistically acheive; for example rather than simply telling the patient to increase exercise, the clinician will work with the patient to identify how many steps they can add each day.  Patients will better understand how they can have a positive impact on their own health.

Examples of Program Success 

Home Care Services

 Partners HealthCare at Home’s skilled staff provides care to more than 300,000 patients each year. We serve people of all ages, ensuring that they can remain in their homes and communities rather than a hospital or nursing home. We provide skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapy, social work, and paraprofessional services in 140 communities in easternMassachusetts. Our services ensure that people can stay in their homes, safely and with comfort and dignity, as they recover from illness, injury, or surgery. 
Budget  $70,000,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Home Health Care
Population Served General/Unspecified Elderly and/or Disabled Other Health/Disability
Program Short-Term Success 
Short-term indicators of impact include: rate of rehospitalization or emergency department use, patient and family satisfaction, and improvement in health and/or physical functioning for our patients.
Program Long-Term Success 
PHH's vision is to be a leader in providing innovative health care solutions to ensure that patients can remain in their homes and communities.  People are living longer and with more complex medical conditions at the same time that the health care system is seeking ways to reduce costs and provide more efficient care.  Home care is a large part of the solution, providing high quality care at a lower cost than a hospital or nursing home stay.  Our long-term goal is to continue to meet the needs of our growing population of patients, developing interventions to meet their needs, and ensuring their quality of life.
Program Success Monitored By 
 Partners HealthCare at Home has a variety of tools available to measure outcomes. One tool is the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) survey from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which issues a monthly report on outcomes. Chart audits are also used on a regular basis in order to spot trends in performance and any red flags that are raised. In addition we use a survey tool for patients and families to measure satisfaction with our services and discover where improvements can be made. Evaluation is a fundamental component of Partners HealthCare at Home and how we ensure continued quality in both patient care and customer service. The data from both Oasis surveys and patient satisfaction surveys is reviewed regularly in order to determine where improvement is needed. The Quality and Compliance Team works with the staff responsible for education and professional development to design programs responding to areas of concern. 
Examples of Program Success  Partners HealthCare at Home was recognized in early 2010 as one of the top performing agencies by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in seven state project. The project was designed to measure the benefits and possible savings of greater utilization of home health care for Medicare patients. The project resulted in $15.4 million dollars in savings, suggesting effective use of home health services nationally could have significant savings to Medicare and Medicaid while providing more effective disease management.

Partners HealthCare at Home placed in the top 20% in the Northeast and scored particularly well on several key measures, including a reduction in hospital and emergency department care, as well as improvement in ability to perform activities of daily living. By utilizing medication management, rehabilitation therapies, and proven interventions such as telemonitoring, patients have shown to manage their illnesses better and maintain a higher quality of life.

Maternal and Child Health Program

 Families with children are served by Partners HealthCare at Home’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program. Partners HealthCare at Home is able to provide a range of services in the home, including colostomy care, infection care, and chemotherapy, reducing stress on patients and their families. Examples of the kinds of patients this team serves include a family bringing a premature infant home who needed guidance in how to allow other family members to interact with this fragile baby; a three-month old with eye cancer who needed blood draws and other highly technical services; a young boy who was left severely brain injured after his heart stopped and whose family needed help to find other services; and a teen with cancer who missed a year of school but who was able to have her treatments at home. 
Budget  $692,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Home Health Care
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) People/Families of People with Cancer People/Families with of People with Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success 
Short-term success of the program is measured in patient-family satisfaction with the program.
Program Long-Term Success 
The program is designed to ensure that infants, children, and youth with serious illness or injury can remain at home while they heal.  We hope to provide these young people with a comfortable and less stressful health care experience.
Program Success Monitored By 
See Home Care description.
Examples of Program Success  An MCH nurse went to visit a 6 year old patient and realized he was the same patient she'd seen as a premature infant and then again at four years old. The child was blind and deaf from birth, and had been diagnosed with cancer. The mother had mental health issues of her own and the family was also facing serious poverty. The nurse provided care to the patient and assistance to the mother, including connecting them to much needed social services. The child passed away and the family expressed their gratitude for the help MCH was able to provide and for the child being able to be home as long as possible.

Many children receive chemotherapy through the program. Nurses also provide significant support to adolescent mothers and their babies, often referring the grandmothers or great-grandmothers for health services when it is clear they have need. MCH nurses have a unique perspective on the needs of the entire family and can make important connections for services.

Patient Safety at Home

 Partners Lifeline is a personal, 24 hours a day, emergency response service that helps people maintain their independence and remain in the comfort of their own homes. When help is needed, a Personal Help button is pressed which signals theResponseCenter. A highly-trained representative assesses the situation and determines the type of help that is needed. Partners Lifeline with AutoAlert automatically places a call for help if it detects that the subscriber has fallen and is unable to press the Personal Help button. We also offer a Medication Dispensing Service which helps patients manage medications. A nurse or caregiver fills the unit with up to 60 doses of medication and programs it to dispense the right medication at the right time of day. The dispenser is designed to reduce health problems resulting from medication mismanagement.
Budget  $1,500,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Home Health Care
Population Served Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens Elderly and/or Disabled People/Families with of People with Physical Disabilities
Program Short-Term Success 
Short term success is measured in the number of Lifeline calls received and number of patients served.  We will also track and measure patient satisfaction with the Lifeline system and medication dispenser.
Program Long-Term Success 
Long-term success is measured in the number of patients who receive emergency help and are transported to a hospital emergency department in time, and in the number of patients who can avoid a hospital trip due to better medication management.
Program Success Monitored By 
Success will be monitored by patient chart review to spot and analyze trends, rates of usage and hospitalization rates, and patient-family satisfaction surveys. 
Examples of Program Success 

Mrs. F. had a fall and was receiving physical therapy at home, while Mr. F. had diabetes and heart disease and was receiving nursing care at home. Lifeline means that they have the reassurance of easy access to emergency response, and it has meant that they can remain in their home, together.  Another patient had a seizure and the only thing she could reach was her Lifeline wrist button. Lifeline was activated and called out to her, but she couldn’t respond loudly enough. The phone rang as Lifeline tried to reach her, but she couldn’t answer. The patient lay there, accepting that she would die and that this was “her time.” Suddenly the EMTs were at her side, summoned by Lifeline. They later told her that when she arrived she had no pulse and was close to death. The patient has repeatedly expressed her gratitude to Partners HealthCare at Home and to Lifelife for saving her life.

Specialty Services

 We offer a number of specialty services to ensure even patients with complex medical needs can remain in their homes and communities. One of these services is telemonitoring. With telemonitoring the patient has a virtual visit every day using special equipment which transmits vital signs to the home care clinician. Combined with regular visits, telemonitoring increases the chance that problems will be detected early. Another specialty service is wound care management. Approximately 15 percent of the patients served are receiving some type of wound care treatment. If not properly managed, wounds can lead to hospitalization or even threaten the life of an older adult. Complex wounds that result from diabetes, post-surgical complications, peripheral vascular disease, stroke and paralysis are treated in the home by our specially trained and board-certified wound care nurses. This program has led to increased healing rates as well as reducing emergency visits and hospitalizations. 
Budget  $570,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Home Health Care
Population Served General/Unspecified Elderly and/or Disabled Other Health/Disability
Program Short-Term Success   The telemonitoring program has already improved patient outcomes including reducing the cycle of emergency room visits and hospital readmissions through early detection and intervention In our initial pilot, the re-hospitalization rate for patients with CHF who were receiving telemonitoring decreased 36 percent. To date, we have served more than 6,000 patients with telemonitoring. 


Program Long-Term Success 
We will measure the success of the program through reduction in re-hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and the overall health of patients, particularly those with chronic illness.
Program Success Monitored By 
Program success is monitored by tracking improvement in patients' health through regular chart review by the telemonitoring team, as well as tracking number of ED visits or hospitalizations.  The team works closely with primary care providers to ensure coordination of care and seeks their input as well.  It is also monitored by patient-family satisfaction surveys.
Examples of Program Success   Adele loves her life. You can hear the zest in her voice, as she masks the heart problems she has experienced in her 70-plus years. For many with Adele’s heart condition, the senior years would be marked by repeated hospitalizations and invasive treatments. But thanks to Partners HealthCare at Home’s telemonitoring, Adele is at home, secure with the knowledge that a Partners nurse is monitoring her daily. This program has changed Adele’s life and gives her the strength to enjoy each day. With telemonitoring, Adele knows how to modify her diet and assess whether a symptom change signaled a problem.

“Knowing someone is always watching out for me, provides psychological benefits as well,” Adele says, “The nurses have been great, giving me useful feedback about taking care of myself. I’m very, very grateful. It’s been a wonderful experience.”

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
