Post Acute Care
BridgeCare's Discharge Services offer 6-weeks of advanced care in the home.
Our services make a difference. The BridgeCare difference.
A broad range of services is offered to complement all other care and designed to ensure healthcare continuity, avoid preventable poor outcomes, and promote the safe and timely transfer of patients.
BridgeCare can accept referrals from the following locations:
Inpatient acute care hospital
Inpatient psychiatric hospital
Hospital Observation Units
Patients leaving the Emergency Room or Urgent care are not eligible for discharge services through BridgeCare.
All private, commercial, Medicaid, and Medicare plans are accepted outside of HMO plans. If you are unsure of the plan type, please give us a call and we will help verify.
BridgeCare coordinates video visits in the comfort of the patients home.
What we do:
Quick Follow-Up Contact
If patients don't hear from us while they're still in inpatient care, they can expect a call within the first day or two after discharge.
Review of Discharge
We go over the patient's inpatient stay and help them make an indivualized plan of recovery.
BridgeCare partners closely with home cares to make sure patients are getting the services they need, as soon as they can.
We offer weekly video or phone follow-up appointments . We check in with a patients' progress and make sure their needs are being met.
Appointments Within 7 Days
All our new patient appointments typically happen within the first seven days of discharge, which helps 'bridge' patients and meet their most pressing needs.
Our providers adjust medications, refill prescriptions, and even oversee IV antibiotics and parenteral nutrition.
For patients with chronic conditions, BridgeCare offers health literacy coaching. Our goal is to make sure patients understand how to best care and advocate for themselves. In doing so we can empower them to seek care at the appropriate places.
When it's time for patients to 'graduate' from our services, we ensure they have enough medications and resources to take the next step in their care.
