To keep our patients safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Janet and Lisa from the Detroit office are making care packages of PPE, donated by our Regional Healthcare Coalition. These will be distributed to roughly 130 nurses in the field so they can continue to provide great care to our highly acute pediatric patients. It is wonderful to see our team work together to help patients and nurses during a difficult time!
Special thanks to all our friends at Mack Trucks in Macungie, PA (pictured) donating much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help keep our Maxim nurses and caregivers safe!
Although many health information professionals are behind the scenes, they work tirelessly to ensure the accuracy and security of patients' health information data. In fact, did you know Maxim’s inpatient coders enter almost $6 billion in inpatient charges each year, with an accuracy rate of 96%? During HIM Week, we want to say thank you for your meticulous efforts that contribute to the healthcare industry.
To all the nurses out there: Thank you for showing up every day to do the job you love even with all of the unknowns we now face. #ThankYouNurses #StayStrong #COVID19
In the midst of this healthcare crisis, our patients still need nurses and caregivers. The hospitals we work with still need LPNs, RNs, doctors, and support staff. And our business partners still need healthcare workers to help their employees stay healthy and safe. Our recruiters are working tirelessly to fill 7,000+ open positions to support these needs in the safest way possible. That means, effective immediately, all interviews can now be conducted virtually via phone, video and other virtual platforms. We're going to get through this by working together.

Our nurses and caregivers are the backbone of the Maxim organization. These brave women and men go out into the world every day to care for others. It's times like this that we come together to support each other as one Maxim family. #OneMaxim
4 healthcare trends you will see this year 1. Homecare is becoming increasingly specialized. Some people view homecare as non-skilled, non-medical care. However, this is inaccurate, as skilled nurses are essential for patient care within the home now more than ever. 2. With some people still misinterpreting the differences between, for example, home health, homecare, respite, companion and other in home services, expect healthcare agencies to educate the public, including government agencies, defining and validating the benefits of these services. 3. With the nursing shortage and the demand for skilled nurses, expect organizations to invest in training programs and professional development opportunities to sharpen employee skills. 4. Technology will play a significant role in patient care, as healthcare professionals will utilize devices such as telemonitoring, medication alarms, smart sensors, digital schedules, fall detectors and other technologies. #HealthcareTrends (Ref: pabusinesscentral.com, prnewswire.com)
Maxim’s Collan Rosier and Rob Schmitz joined PHA Staff members to speak with the new House Aging and Older Adult Services Chairman, Gary Day (R-Berks), regarding the homecare industry and to discuss legislative issues and priorities. Collan and Rob expressed the importance of Medicaid reimbursement rates for personal assistance services, restoring the Older Adult Protective Services Act (OAPSA), establishing deemed eligibility for homecare services, and other impactful initiatives in the health care industry.
Maxim applauds pediatric nurse practitioners', as they dedicate their lives to providing outstanding care with compassion to children. These nurses not only administer care, but many develop a special bond with their patients. They do this by showing interest in their hobbies and favorite TV shows, they attend school functions, and even keeping in touch with them when care is no longer needed. It takes a very special kind of person to care for children, so to those NPs we say thank you during Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Week.
