Chronic Disease Care Models
We worked with specialists in different fields including endocrinology, cardiology, internal medicine, and geriatric medicine to develop Silver HealthLink and its integration models for collaborative care. Among these models is for diabetes care. Diabetes is ranked second behind congestive heart failure as the primary diagnosis at entry into home care. The projected increase in the size of the age group 65 and over in future years, as well as the projected increase in the incidence of diabetes, underscore the importance of the diabetes home health care services.
Care for elders with diabetes is often more challenging compared with that of elderly people without diabetes; SHL is a tool to simplify this challenge and save caregivers time. No two elderly people are alike and every person with diabetes needs a customized diabetes care plan. Some elders are healthy and can manage their diabetes on their own, while others may have one or more diabetes complications. Others may be frail, have memory loss and/or have several chronic diseases in addition to diabetes. The following care services are customizable in accordance to the patient's requirement and the service provider's available resources.
Home care nurses provide clients, their family members, and their caregivers education about their chronic disease, how to manage it, their medication and side effects, administration of insulin, their care plan, and available support resources. SHL includes educational video library for sustained self-education.
Patients or with the assistance of the home care nurse records their self-monitoring data and life style changes in SHL as recommended by their physicians. Self-monitoring data and current and historical clinical data will be reviewed home care nurses to provide recommendation on lifestyle changes and physicians treatment recommendations.
Home care nurses and physicians access client’s health information using SHL for continuous monitoring, virtual care, and telehealth. SHL produces automated notifications related to changes in health conditions and read receipts, these notifications are based on health care providers recommendations.

Home care nurses are the liaison among members of the health care team, patients, family members, and caregivers.
