CARE Act Readiness:
                                   Engaging Patient Compliance      

According to AARP, by the end of December 2015, 18 states had passed the CARE (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable) Act and five additional state legislators were considering passage. The CARE Act requires hospitals  to identify, support and train family caregivers by:
 
       - Recording the family caregiver's name in the patient's                      medical  chart
       - Advising the family caregiver when the patient is being                    transferred or discharged
       - Enabling family caregivers by providing education about the          medical tasks he or she will need to perform for the patient            at home
 
 
 
                                        THIS IS HUGE.
