KDHE Requests Your Assistance in Completing This Survey

KDHE (Sept. 4, 2020) – Healthcare Coalition Partners of Kansas has been contracted by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to identify any current issues/best practices in the transition of COVID-19 positive individuals or those individuals who are in post treatment of COVID-19 from an acute care hospital to a post-acute care facility or home with a home healthcare provider.

To be successful, HCCP of KS has developed a survey to determine opinions, concerns and best practices from health care providers across the disciplines of hospitals, post-acute care facilities and local health departments within Kansas.

If you work for a hospital, public health department or post-acute care facility, please complete this survey by no later than 5 p.m. on Sept. 16, 2020.

Once the surveys have been completed, the results will be sorted and reported to all seven of the regional healthcare coalitions. Those regional coalitions will create a project team to develop a regional strategy to address the transition of individuals from an acute care facility to a post-acute facility locally or within the region.

This survey and the work that follows is intended to assist in building a local and regional collaborative effort and establishing best practices within all regions of Kansas to meet the needs of the individuals served.

Questions regarding the survey, should be directed to Kerry McCue, project manager.
