Resumen

SILVA, Kênia Lara et al. Supplementary home health care services and the inclusion of nursing in Belo Horizonte/Minas Gerais (Brazil). Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.3, pp. 408-414. ISSN 0103-2100.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002012000300014.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate modalities of home care services, discussing the inclusion of nursing. METHODS: A qualitative case study conducted with four health plan providers in the city of Belo Horizonte / Minas Gerais (Brazil). Data were obtained from interviews and case management. RESULTS: The home care services are grouped into three modalities: long-term care at home; temporary care at home; and, use of intensive technologies and care. In these modalities, nurses assume care actions, management of the care, and qualifying the care through the appropriate use of soft technologies. There is a trend towards outsourcing of nursing services to home care. CONCLUSION: The inclusion of the work of nurses in home care modalities represents both a component of cost reduction and contributes to the technological transition by establishing new forms of care at home.
