Fosters’ Care Transition Strategy to reduce preventable Hospital Readmissions
Foster Home Healthcare has implemented a proven Care Transition Strategy to reduce preventable readmissions to your hospital. Home health care helps patients recover in the comfort of home, reducing avoidable hospital readmissions and keeping healthcare costs down. Our specially trained clinicians will carry out the treatment plan you prescribe, helping your patients achieve optimal health in familiar and comfortable surroundings. We offer home health care services for a wide range of diseases and conditions.
In hospitals around the state, our dedicated care transition coordinators serve as a vital link between physician, hospital, home health agency and patient – facilitating the transition from acute to post-acute care back to home. From medication management and post-discharge education to follow-up appointment coordination, our care transition coordinators help improve patient outcomes and reduce avoidable hospitalizations.
To reduce unnecessary ER visits and prevent readmission, Foster will teach patients to call us first when problems or symptoms occur. Our on-call nurses are armed with triage protocols to respond appropriately to patient needs. Our skilled clinicians have completed continuing education in chronic diseases and conditions of aging, and we’ll partner with you and your patients to promote recovery in the comfort of home.
Foster Patient Call Back
Our commitment to the patients in our care doesn’t end with discharge. Patients and family don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. A member of our team will make two calls to patients after home health services have ended to check on their recovery and progress. This service is one more way we’re helping keep our patients out of the hospital and in the comfort of home.
