Nursing Home

The most prevalent type of home health care is nursing care

Depending on the individual’s need, the most prevalent type of home health care is nursing care. A plan of care will be devised by a certified nurse in consultation with the doctor. Wound dressing, ostomy care, intravenous therapy, drug administration, patient monitoring, pain control, and other health assistance are examples of nursing care. In-home nursing care includes a wide range of medical treatments that can be delivered in the privacy and convenience of the patient’s own home. At the same time, home care nursing services are often less expensive than care in a hospital or a nursing home.

Value-Based Care

Patients and their families benefit from in-home nursing services, which offer the same quality of personalized nursing care as a regular hospital, but with an emphasis on compassion and a deeper connection to the patient and their family.

One can get home health therapists such as physical therapists and occupational therapists in addition to licensed practical nurses. As a result, you don’t have to be concerned about the home nurse’s ability to give high-quality care.

When it comes to home health care, the words “In-House Care” and “Home Health Care” have historically been used interchangeably. Home Health Care or In-Home Nursing Services, on the other hand, refers to professional nursing care, while the phrase “In-Home Care” refers to non-medical care services such as companionship, monitoring, and personal care assistance.

What Our Leader Say

“We use telemedicine to close gaps in care. For example, sometimes patients are transferred to the ED for care the SNF can’t provide. With Tele-SNF, we have peer-to-peer management of that transfer. Oftentimes, the patient can be returned to the SNF that same day. We put expertise in place to ensure patients’ goals are met and care is appropriate.”
Brian Carpenter, MD SFHM
National Medical Director, Telemedicine

Telemedicine

Value in telemedicine is more than technology. It is ubiquitous access to expert care, day or night, anywhere and everywhere. Our network of highly-trained physicians are experts in managing acutely ill patients when clinical crises inevitably arise, in any setting, including their home. Reaching patients when others cannot, we close gaps in care and dramatically reduce hospital readmissions.

  • We are the only scaled physician provider delivering telemedicine to SNFs, reducing readmissions by 30%
  • We accelerate the initiation of care for the nation’s largest home health providers
  • Our expert physician oversight helps manage higher acuity patients in the home setting
