Premier RN Geriatric Care: Health management innovators
In an age of decreased payments to health care providers and changes to Medicare and private insurance reimbursements based on outcomes, hospitalizations, ER visits, and re-hospitalizations, the healthcare landscape is as complex as ever. Premier RN Geriatric Care is dedicated to helping our clients navigate this complexity, reduce serious events, and maximize quality of life.
Since our inception, Premier RN Geriatric Care is dedicated to achieving excellent outcomes for our clients by carefully coordinating the care and available resources to help prevent re-hospitalizations, decrease the risk of injury from falls, and reduce infection rates. This successful approach has enabled Premier RN Geriatric Care to build strong collaborative relationships with Humana Senior Bridge and Workplace Options.
In the 5 years we’ve been in business, Premier RN Geriatric Care has achieved excellent outcomes for our clients. We take pride in sharing our innovative approaches by hosting a national video program called Arlington Eldercare Channel where we can help empower others to improve the management of elder care.
