Abstract
HCR PROPOSES A STUDY TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPINGA PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT GUIDE ON THE SHARED AIDE SYSTEM FOR MANAGING DELIVERY OF HOME HEALTH SERVICES. THE PROJECT WILL BE CONDUCTED BY ANALYZING OUR CURRENT MANAGEMENT OF FOUR SHARED AIDE PACKAGES IN MONROE COUNTY, NEW YORK. IF OUR STUDY SHOWS THAT IT IS FEASIBLE TO REPLICATE OUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE SHARED AIDE SYSTEM, WE WILL THEN BE ABLE TO DEVELOP A PROGRAMMED INSTITUTION MANAGEMENT GUIDE THAT WE CAN SELL TO HOME HEALTH AGENCIES AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. THE GUIDE WILL TEACH THEM HOW TO IMPLEMENT THE SYSTEM TO SERVE THEIR CLIENTS. OUR PRELIMINARY OPERATION OF THE SHARED AIDE SYSTEM SHOWED THAT IT SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED THE COST OF HOME HEALTH SERVICES WHILE MAINTAINING OR IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF CARE PROVIDED.WE THEREFORE ANTICIPATE THAT THE GUIDE WILL BE A HIGHLY MARKETABLE PRODUCT.
