Collaborative Partnerships: Managing Increased Healthcare Demand without Increasing Overall System Capacity

Paul Masotti, Eleanor Rivoire, Wendy Rowe, Marnie Dahl and Eleanor Plain

The result was a pilot project in which both homecare clients and non-urgent hospital patients could be served in a hospital-based ambulatory nursing care clinic.
