Chronic conditions like heart attacks, lung disease, diabetes
and cancer are exceedingly prevalent across the country and a major issue here
in the Northshore Chicago area and places like Northbrook and Glenview. One of
the ways the Medicare system is attempting to address these conditions is through
the Affordable Care Act. Hospitals are making an effort to minimize readmissions
for a variety of chronic conditions, including COPD, total hip arthroplasty (THA),
total knee arthroplasty (TKA), heart failure, and pneumonia. Working closely
with the health care community we are helping to manage discharge from hospitials
and rehab facilities for all of these chronic conditions in an effort to
minimize readmissions to hospitals which is bogging down our system. We work
with the medical community to make sure that there is a clean discharge and
understanding of the protocol once the patient is at home to minimize
readmissions. Our goal is to keep our clients safe and secure in their homes
where they want to be.
