Home Health Reduces Hospital Visits
At Armonia Home Health & Hospice, our goal is to reduce hospital visits and limit readmissions. To improve patient outcomes and reduce these visits, Armonia takes much into consideration such as:
• Knowing when our patients are at risk of readmission. Whether in person or remotely, our team closely monitors high-risk patients.
• Ensuring our team members are aware of high-risk patients. Before entering a patient’s home, our staff members have been briefed on whether the patient is at high risk for readmission. This allows us to pay attention to signs of worsening symptoms such as potential infections, pain, and medication compliance.
• Providing patients and family members with the education they need. Educating patients about their care is the key to a successful clinical outcome. Patient education can happen in or outside the home with the use of technology.
• Engaging with patients in between home visits. Our team ensures patient concerns are addressed before a hospital readmission occurs. We connect with patients outside their scheduled visits and address issues before they become detrimental.
At Armonia, we use a variety of effective methods to address and organize patient needs. Our experienced team uses proven, reliable strategies to keep patients healthy and out of the hospital.
