Hospital care

BridgeCare can assist patients and hospitals in  the following way 

  • Allowing for early discharge by signing home care orders, new orders or prescriptions, bridging care via our physicians 

  • Virtual follow up care until their primary care appointment 

  • Assistance with establishing with a new primary care provider 

  • Assistance to case managers in meeting care needs following discharge 

We help take the burden off hospital case managers and patients at the time of discharge. 

We provide the additional benefit of reducing 30-day readmissions with our comprehensive care plans. This success translates to fewer  ER visits in addition to fewer inpatient readmissions.

 

Patients benefit from having a physician advocate in their corner who helps assist them in navigating the complicated health system following discharge.
