Paper vs. Electronic Medical Record Keeping

Medical records are the document that explains all detail about the patient’s history, clinical findings, diagnostic test results, pre and postoperative care, patient’s progress and medication.

Home Care Isn’t Home Health Care

Although there are many differences between home care and home health care, both types of care can help older adults stay safe and independent in their homes. Home health care provides “clinical” or “skilled” care by qualified doctors, licensed nurses and therapists whereas homecare provides “non-clinical” or “non-skilled” care by professional caregivers.
