Reducing Hospitalization and Keeping Patients Healthy.
The Mission to Cut Hospitalization
Advantage Home Healthcare keeps patients healthy and out of the hospital. We do this by first identifying “high risk” patients, such as with Congestive Heart Failure; Myocardial Infarction; Pneumonia; and COPD. We then implement disease management programs and patient teaching guides:
- Tele-monitoring, which allows early detection and decreases re-admittance. University of Chicago research revealed a 26% reduction in re-admissions when used in addition to regular nursing visits.
- Complete Patient Teaching Guide(s) and Education, such as for CHF; Diabetes; COPD; and Wound Care (Vac Certified RN’s).
- Promote Wellness Through Action, such as with Safe living environment; Diet; Lifestyle; and Knowing risk factors.
