Backus Launches Preventative Medicine Team

Backus Hospital launched a Preventive Medicine Team to create, develop and institute a program designed to support patients who are frequently admitted to the hospital. Members of the team include Lisa Hageman, RN, MSN; Barbara Sinko, LMSW; and Lisa DeCarlo, APRN. They are working to develop a registry of at-risk patients, implement hospital interventions, create individualized transitional care guides, and track how the initiative impacts the goals of the national Triple Aim for healthcare.
