Caregiving Pathways is the only organization that focuses on teaching family caregivers how to improve patient health outcomes

We’re developing three scores that measure the effectiveness of family caregivers on inpatient health outcomes, satisfaction, and cost:

  • Caregiving Pathways Outcomes ScoreTM
  • Caregiving Pathways Patient Satisfaction ScoreTM
  • Caregiving Pathways Cost-Savings ScoreTM

Our goal is to work with hospitals, health plans, and care providers to help family caregivers improve inpatient health outcomes and reduce hospital costs.

Our focus: Improving patient health outcomes

Family caregivers can influence a loved one’s hospital experience and health outcome — but only if they understand the power they have and how to use it. We invite you to join Caregiving Pathways on our mission to:

  • Teach family caregivers how to improve patient outcomes in the hospital
  • Decrease the cost of hospital care by reducing hospital days, ER visits, and preventable readmissions
  • Enhance the patient experience

A solution so simple, there’s no disruption

Family caregivers are extra hands, eyes, and ears that currently exist in virtually every patient room. We engage this influential population to improve inpatient health outcomes and reduce the cost of care — without disrupting care delivery.

Providers can learn critical patient-specific details

These family members can also help care delivery teams identify patient-specific situations, such as depression, dementia, substance abuse, or hearing loss, that aren’t readily apparent but significantly affect patients’ ability to manage their condition and hospital experience.

Beth Suereth presented Improving Health Outcomes by Educating Family Caregivers at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Summit on Improving Patient Care in San Diego, California on April 27, 2018.

When her father was hospitalized for his first surgery, Beth wasn’t aware that family members could have an impact on the health of a hospitalized loved one. Several hospital stays later, it became clear that family caregivers could and, in fact, need to make a significant difference in a loved one’s health outcome and overall cost of care.

Beth is focused on creating a family caregiver culture that will drive improved patient outcomes.
