In the first webinar of the series, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island discusses their Nurse Practitioner Rounding Program initiated in February of 2017 to improve the quality of care for long-stay nursing home residents, while reducing unnecessary health care costs. They cover the business case for this model, the operational considerations, preliminary findings, and lessons learned.
