Northwestern to offer home-based health training
Crain’s Chicago Business
August 1, 2017
In a move to serve Chicago’s growing number of seniors and to reduce costs for Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine will soon offer a program that trains doctors on how to provide home-based primary care.
Feinberg has been working with Schaumburg-based Home Centered Care Institute for the past year to develop a program that will coach up to 40 doctors, physician assistants, social workers and nurse practitioners to provide primary care to patients at home. Five Northwestern hospital officials will teach in the new HCCI Centers of Excellence program, which is set to launch in early October.
