The HOPE Skilled Nursing Facility Collaborative consists of 23 skilled nursing facilities across 6 North Carolina Counties. Member facilities have agreed to collaborate closely with Duke Health around the goal of providing better, more coordinated care for our shared patients by:
- Participating in quarterly conferences and monthly meetings to exchange best practices and address key objectives
- Improving rates of scheduling and arrived primary care appointments within 14 days of discharge from their facility
- Improving utilization of the Duke Health Transfer Center for ED transfer to Duke Hospitals
- Improving transitions from Duke Hospital to their SNF through implementation and use of the Duke MedLink electronic medical record portal
