NEW YORK STATE'S

Gold Stamp Program
To Reduce Pressure Ulcers 

 

The New York’s Gold STAMP (Success Through Assessment, Management, and Prevention) Program to Reduce Pressure Ulcers is a model for health care providers throughout the state as health care reform efforts focus on achieving cross-setting collaboration and coordination of care and improving care for high-cost conditions like pressure ulcers.

Led by the Department of Health (DOH), HANYS (Healthcare Association of New York State), and various partnering organizations, Gold STAMP provides evidence-based resources and education to hospitals, nursing homes, and home- and community-based providers to support a systems-based approach to pressure ulcer prevention, assessment, and management.

Gold STAMP encourages neighboring providers to establish coordinated, multi-setting projects to fight pressure ulcers along the entire continuum of care. Facilitated by a series of regional conferences, these local networks come together to share best practices and lessons learned with their peers. Through participation in Gold STAMP conferences, new cross-setting partnerships and collaboratives aimed at reducing pressure ulcers are formed.

Drawing from several statewide pilot programs, the coalition created an organizational self-assessment tool, electronic resource guide, and action plan template to help providers work together to achieve Gold STAMP’s goals.

According to a DOH spokesman, Gold STAMP is particularly important and relevant in the context of health care reform: “This is an evidence-based quality improvement [program] that engages caregivers to change their patterns of care and incorporates interventions to improve care continuity and transitions of care.”

Always There is now an integral part for this great program! The New York State Gold Stamp Program To Reduce Pressure Ulcers partners for Ulster County include: Always There, Health Alliance, Ten Broeck Commons, Hospice, Inc. and the Mountainside Residential Care Center.
